This howto explains how to write scripts that the new cruxports4slack uses to build applications (ports).

The new ports system works great, and it'd be nice to get some of you out there to contribute to the ports repo as well. This howto should get you started on how to write such scripts. It rather simple actually, much easier than writing SlackBuild, and just as functional.

We do have our own (small at the time) collection of scripts.

I hope a lot more packagers get involved in this method of packaging as well.
Here is the link to the howto

an excellent howto!
There is a way to set the source as svn/git/cvs, right... but that would mean big changes to the script.

oh,i found one sample:

Thanks,Moe. The crux ports system has such a clean and easy to understand/edit code. I think it was a very smart choice over the slackbuilds.
I can feel the excitement in the air.
