Announcing pkgexp

Ross Burton


I’ve just released the first release of pkgexp, a tool to explore the pkgdata that has been generated in a build. Quoting from the README:

pkgexp is a tool to visually explore the OpenEmbedded `pkgdata`, which is the generated package-scope metadata. Specifically, it is designed to answer common questions regarding what has been built:

- What recipes have been built?
- What packages did those packages build?
- What files are in a specific package?
- What other packages does this package depend on?
- What packages depend on this package?

It’s written in Python and is a local webapp (mainly because my build machine is remote, so little webapps make sense).

The code is at, and positive feedback is welcome.
