Eloi is an ebuild searcher and installer (eix with extra steps). Searches through all Gentoo's overlays provided by Layman and listed by Zugania's website.
- Find and install an ebuild package from any overlay
- Enable ebuild overlays
- More in the future...
First, add the ebuild repository from here: https://github.com/mbaraa/mbaraa-overlay.
Install app-portage/eloi using emerge:
emerge --ask app-portage/eloi
go install github.com/mbaraa/eloi@latest
Update local repositories' cache
These cache files are stored in /var/cache/eloi:
Find an ebuild
--search flag to find an ebuild, this will list all ebuilds that have
pulseaudio-equalizer in their name, with other details, like version, overlay name, use flags, license:
eloi -S pulseaudio-equalizer
eloi --search pulseaudio-equalizer
Enable an overlay repository
This can be done using the
eloi --enable underworld
Or by installing a package from a repository that's not enabled on the system, for now just search for a package and install it, and Eloi will add its corresponding repository!
