WDCommunity proudly presents: Entware, a package manager with about 2000 packages for embedded devices.
This application is like the swiss army knife of embedded devices.
It’s a bit less full-fledged compared to Docker, but it’s also much lighter.
It has NO graphical frontend, so you can only interact with it via SSH. Some other apps however may depend on the presence of this Entware app.
This app ships with a persistent home directory, so your cache and config is no longer lost on reboot, e.g. authorized SSH keys. My goal is to move this into a separate app though.
This installer gets you the latest version of Entware, the next generation branch of the former Optware.
An internet connection is required during installation.
How does a person install Entware? Previously, I downloaded a bin file from WD community, but won’t install on OS5. I looked at github, are we now supposed to download the code, compile it as a bin file?
