Third Party Repository

Table of Contents >>

OpenMAMA maintain a repository of third party plugins on Cloudsmith that are provided as-is.

The idea is to provide a single, central place where Linux users can pull in the latest versions of third party plugins easily without having to go directly to third parties and fragment the deployment experience (especially at an early stage when it may not be clear how to get these third party libraries).

The repository may be found at and contribution to this repository is managed by the OpenMAMA maintainer. If you would like to contribute your own packages, you are free to submit them for consideration by raising a github issue.

Creating an OpenMAMA third party package

The easiest way to create an OpenMAMA third party package is by using a tool called fpm since it can create packages of many types and can build a package with only a directory.

The OpenMAMA packages expect to be deployed to /opt/openmama so your plugins / bridges should install to /opt/openmama/lib (taking care not to overwrite any existing files).

You can create your own package by creating a directory with nothing inside except for your component libraries and its dependencies, then using fpm to package it up:

mkdir lib_dir
cp /your/lib/location/*.so ./lib_dir
fpm -t deb -s dir -v 0.0.1 -n openmama-yourcomponentname ./assets/=/opt/openmama/lib/

Or using rpm instead of deb to create an RPM package.
