=CPack Package Generators=

CPack may generate several kind of package on behalf of various ''CPack Generators''. All generators share common properties explained below. Some if not all generators do have specific features or restriction which are explained in specific sections.
This page has moved [https://gitlab.kitware.com/cmake/community/wikis/doc/cpack/PackageGenerators here].
== Overall usage (common to all generators) ==
Information about CPACK_xxx variables used for CPack configuration
may be found there: [http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake:CPackConfiguration CPackConfiguration]
The CPACK_GENERATOR variable has different meanings in different contexts. In your CMakeLists.txt file, CPACK_GENERATOR is a '''list of generators''': when run with no other arguments, CPack will iterate over that list and produce one package for each generator. In a CPACK_PROJECT_CONFIG_FILE, though, CPACK_GENERATOR is a '''string naming a single generator'''. If you need per-cpack-generator logic to control '''other''' cpack settings, then you need a CPACK_PROJECT_CONFIG_FILE. For example it may be used to switch on/off [http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake:Component_Install_With_CPack#CPack_Generator_specific_behavior component packaging] for a specific generator.
The CMake source tree itself contains a CPACK_PROJECT_CONFIG_FILE. See the top level file [http://cmake.org/gitweb?p=cmake.git;a=blob;f=CMakeCPackOptions.cmake.in;hb=HEAD CMakeCPackOptions.cmake.in] for an example.
If set, the CPACK_PROJECT_CONFIG_FILE is included automatically on a per-generator basis. It only needs to contain overrides.
Here's how it works:
# cpack runs
# it includes CPackConfig.cmake (usually found in the build tree)
# it iterates over the generators listed in that file's CPACK_GENERATOR list variable (unless told to use just a specific one via -G on the command line...), then for each generator it:
## sets CPACK_GENERATOR to the one currently being iterated over. This is the key: For each generator listed in CPACK_GENERATOR in CPackConfig.cmake, cpack will '''reset''' CPACK_GENERATOR internally to '''the one currently being used''' and then include the CPACK_PROJECT_CONFIG_FILE.
## produces the package for that generator
==Archive Generators==
The archive generators are a family of CPack generators derived from the same base class generator. These generators use the [http://code.google.com/p/libarchive/ libarchive] library to produce various archive file formats. These generators share common properties which are explained in this section. Specific features are explained in sections corresponding to the specific generator.
Tar GZip compressed packages.
Self extracting Tar GZip compressed packages (needs /bin/sh, tar, gunzip and tail for extracting).
Tar BZip2 compressed packages. Requires bzip2 for creating the package.
Tar UNIX compress compressed packages.
ZIP compressed packages. CMake 2.4.x required zip, WinZip or 7Zip for creating the package. CMake 2.8.x built-in libarchive support does not need external programs in order to build ZIP.
Nullsoft Installer. Requires [http://nsis.sourceforge.net/ NSIS] for creating the package.
=== NSIS Generator Specifics settings ===
|- bgcolor="#abcdef"
! Variable Name || Description || Example
| CPACK_NSIS_MUI_ICON || The icon file (.ico) for the generated install program. Both this and CPACK_NSIS_MUI_UNIICON need to set for this to have any effect. || installer.ico
| CPACK_NSIS_MUI_UNIICON || The icon file (.ico) for the generated uninstall program. Both this and CPACK_NSIS_MUI_ICON need to set for this to have any effect. || uninstaller.ico
| CPACK_PACKAGE_ICON || A branding image that will be displayed on the top bar inside the installer. || installer.bmp
| CPACK_NSIS_EXTRA_INSTALL_COMMANDS || Extra NSIS commands that will be added to the install Section. || ExecWait '\\\"$INSTDIR\\\\vcredist_x86.exe\\\" /q:a'
| CPACK_NSIS_EXTRA_UNINSTALL_COMMANDS || Extra NSIS commands that will be added to the uninstall Section. ||
| CPACK_NSIS_COMPRESSOR || The arguments that will be passed to the NSIS SetCompressor command. || /SOLID lzma
| CPACK_NSIS_MODIFY_PATH || If this is set to "ON", then an extra page will appear in the installer that will allow the user to choose whether the program directory should be added to the system PATH variable. || ON
| CPACK_NSIS_INSTALLED_ICON_NAME || Set the icon used for the Windows "Add or Remove Programs" tool. || "bin\\\\MyExecutable.exe"
| CPACK_NSIS_HELP_LINK || Adds link to registry. URI. || "http:\\\\\\\\www.my-project-home-page.org"

==DragNDrop (OSX only)==
Mac OSX Drag and Drop installer.  Similar to the Bundle generator except that this generator doesn't create the bundle for you.
To make a bundle, use the MACOSX_BUNDLE parameter in add_executable(), and to specify icon, plist, and other bundle properties, just set them with a set_target_properties() call.  It also supports creating a folder that contains multiple bundles and other files.
==PackageMaker (OSX only)==
Mac OSX Package Maker packages. Requires Package Maker for creating the package.
Some of the variables that you can use to customize the Package Maker generated package:
{| border="1" cellpadding="2"
  ||Variable Name
  ||Default value
| CPACK_PREFLIGHT_SCRIPT || This script is launched just after the user clicked on the "Install" button. || -
| CPACK_POSTFLIGHT_SCRIPT || This script is launched after the postinstall / postupgrade script or when the package has been || -
| CPACK_POSTUPGRADE_SCRIPT || This script is launched after the files in the package have been installed. (Isn't an option for a postinstall script missing? According to Apple documentation, postinstall is executed the first time a package is installed and postupgrade all subsequent times)  || -
| CPACK_OSX_PACKAGE_VERSION || Set to the minimum OS X version you support. Choices are currently 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5 || 10.3, unless you specified features that require a higher OS X version (CPACK_DOWNLOAD_SITE, CPACK_COMPONENTS_ALL)
This is a useful site that describes where the scripts get executed and what the arguments to the scripts are.  See section "What about scripts?". http://s.sudre.free.fr/Stuff/PackageMaker_Howto.html .  In summary the arguments correspond to $0 Script path, $1 Package path, $2 Target location, and $3 Target Volume.
==OSXX11 (OSX only)==
Mac OSX X11 Bundle. Requires hdiutil for creating the package.
== Bundle (OSX only) ==
=== Overview ===
The Bundle generator (introduced in CMake 2.6) creates a compressed disk image containing an OSX bundle, whose contents are populated with CMake INSTALL() commands.  This makes it possible to create bundles of arbitrary complexity while minimizing differences with installation on other platforms.  For example, a bundle created with the bundle generator can contain multiple executable files, libraries generated by the build, third-party dependencies, etc.
'''''Important Note:''''' Do '''not''' use the MACOSX_BUNDLE property on executables that will be packaged using the bundle-generator!  Specifying MACOSX_BUNDLE creates a separate bundle for each individual executable at build-time; the structure of these bundles becomes redundant when the bundle generator consolidates multiple executables into a single bundle.
=== Bundle Layout ===
    Info.plist (copied from ${CPACK_BUNDLE_PLIST})
      (file contents defined by CMake INSTALL() commands)
* CPACK_BUNDLE_PLIST is the name of a file that becomes the Info.plist for the bundle.  This could be a hard-coded file included with the program sources, a file generated with CONFIGURE_FILE, etc.  Rationale: Info.plist can become arbitrarily complex, applications need to be able to specify its contents directly.
* The bundle's Resources/ directory is populated with the files installed with CMake INSTALL() commands.  Rationale: integrate well with CMake and other package generators (such as NSIS).  Makes it easy to incorporate external dependencies (Qt, GTK) into the bundle.
* CPACK_BUNDLE_STARTUP_COMMAND is the name of a file that will be executed when the user opens the bundle.  It could be a binary or a script.  Rationale: for most non-trivial applications, simply running a binary is not enough.  The following sample script demonstrates several common startup operations:
** Starts X11 (required by GTK).
** Updates DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH so that the application can locate libraries that are included in the bundle.  This eliminates the need to run install_name_tool on libraries in the bundle, which is messy and error-prone.  Useful for either Qt or GTK.
** Updates PATH so the "main" application can easily run "child" binaries included in the bundle.
** Sets-up some temporary files and environment variables required by (in this case) GTK.
** Passes information to the application via the command line (in this case, paths to several application resources located in the bundle).

* The bundle is then stored in a compressed disk image.  Rationale: de-facto standard mechanism for distributing bundles.
=== Required CMake Variables ===
The prototype bundle generator uses the following variables:
* CPACK_PACKAGE_FILE_NAME - provides the name of the final compressed disk image (the name of the file that is distributed).
* CPACK_PACKAGE_ICON - provides the icon for the mounted disk image (appears after the user mounts the disk image).
* CPACK_BUNDLE_NAME - provides the bundle name (displayed in the finder underneath the bundle icon).
* CPACK_BUNDLE_ICON - provides the bundle icon (displayed in the /Applications folder, on the dock, etc).
* CPACK_BUNDLE_PLIST - path to a file that will become the bundle plist.
* CPACK_BUNDLE_STARTUP_COMMAND - path to a file that will be executed when the user opens the bundle.  Could be a shell-script or a binary.
=== Known Issues ===
* [http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=7523 0007523: CPack OSX bundle generator can fail when assigning a custom volume icon.]
=== TODO ===
* Detect attempts to use the bundle generator with MACOSX_BUNDLE.
* Generate a default Info.plist file if CPACK_BUNDLE_PLIST is not defined.
* Support fixing-up binaries with install_name_tool, eliminating the need to run a script that sets DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.
* Add arbitrary files (such as background images, READMEs, etc) to the disk image - this use-case is distinct from adding files to the bundle with INSTALL().
* Provide an option or alternative to CPACK_BUNDLE_STARTUP_COMMAND that simply executes one of the files installed in the bundle.  Presumably, this should be a symlink to a binary or script.
==CygwinBinary (Cygwin only)==
Tar Bzip2 compressed Cygwin package.  Requires bzip2 for creating the package.
==CygwinSource (Cygwin only)==
Tar Bzip2 compressed Cygwin source package.  Requires bzip2 for creating the package.
==DEB (UNIX only)==
Debian packages (2.0 version only, see the debian-binary file). In CMake cvs since July 2007, will be in 2.6.0. With CPack 2.4.x you can use the approach described in [[CMakeUserUseDebian]] (Requires only ar for creating the package). Warning: due to an incompatibility between GNU-ar and BSD-ar this is not a long-term recommended solution.
Instead you should switch to the solution implemented in 2.6.x where a BSD-ar implementation was integrated in CPack.
Reference: [libapt-inst] Should support both BSD and SysV ar formats
* http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=161593
Only binary package are supported. source package do not really make sense since build process is cmake driven.
Here are the variables needed for a binary package:
=== control file (aka DEBIAN/control) for binary package ===
Specific variables are needed to generate the control file for debian package. This file is created automatically using the following variables, some of which are mandatory and some are optional.
See also: [http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-binarycontrolfiles]
'''package name'''
* debian policy enforce lower case for package name
* Package: (mandatory)
* if CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_NAME is not set CPACK_PACKAGE_NAME (lower case will be used)
* Version: (mandatory)
* Architecture: (mandatory)
* if not set CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_ARCHITECTURE will be set to i386
* should be set via: dpkg --print-architecture
* There is no such thing as i686 architecture on debian, you should use i386 instead
* Depends:
* eg.:
    SET(CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_DEPENDS "libc6 (>= 2.3.1-6), libgcc1 (>= 1:3.4.2-12)")
* have a look at GET_PROPERTY(result GLOBAL ENABLED_FEATURES), this returns the successful FIND_PACKAGE() calls, maybe this can help
* TODO: automate 'objdump -p | grep NEEDED'
* Maintainer: (mandatory)
** valid email is required
* Description: (mandatory)
* Section: (recommended)
* if not set CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_SECTION will default to 'devel'
* Priority: (recommended)
* if not set CPACK_DEBIAN_PACKAGE_PRIORITY will be set to "optional"
* Recommends:
* Suggests:
'''Control Extra'''
* Additional control files (optional)
* In order to perform pre-, or post-install configuration, certain files can be provided in the DEBIAN/ folder in the debian package (postinst, preinst, postrm, prerm)
* E.g.
=== Source (for reference only) ===
Here are the variables needed for a source package (not implemented):
* For debian source packages:
* see also [http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-sourcecontrolfiles debian/control]
* .dsc
* see also [http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-debiansourcecontrolfiles]
Most of them are identical with the binary package, with exception:
* eg.:
"debhelper (>> 5.0.0), libncurses5-dev, tcl8.4"

==RPM (Unix Only)==
Binary RPM packages are supported by CMake (more precisely by CPack) since CMake 2.6.0.
If you use CMake 2.4.x (or you want to build source RPM)
you may use the [[CMakeUserUseRPMTools]] module.
The CPack RPM generator supports  [[http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake:Component_Install_With_CPack CPack Component installation]]. You can find details about the implementation [[http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=7645 here]].
=== CPack RPM usage ===
The CPack RPM generator is similar to other CPack generators. Its execution is controlled using:
* generic  CPACK_xxxx variables see [[CMake:CPackConfiguration|CPack variables]]
* specific CPACK_RPM_xxxx variables see generator specific wiki pages
Since CMake/CPack 2.8.0, a detailed description of how to use the CPACK_RPM_xxxx is available in this article or from the CMake command line:
  cmake --help-module CPackRPM
If you use [[CMake:Packaging_With_CPack#Using_CPack_with_CMake|CPack with CMake]] with the Makefile
generator you usually launch:
  cd build_dir
  make package
However if you want more command line control over the CPack run you may launch:
  cd build_dir
this will launch CPack with additionnal CPACK_RPM_xxxx variables definitions which
may be used by CPack RPM generator.
=== CPack RPM generators specific settings ===
CPack RPM specific variables are used to generate an RPM spec file
which will be processed by the ''rpmbuild'' tool.
A specific variable may be
* ''optional'', the variable may or may not be set and its value is not needed for building a valid spec file.
* '''mandatory''', the variable must be set because we need a value for building a valid spec file.
** '''mandatory with default value''', the variable must be set but a default value is provided.
** '''mandatory''', the variable must be set and no default value is provided.
Here is the list of CPack RPM specific variables (''some variable are not yet supported because there are some patches pending''):
{| border="1" cellpadding="2"
  ||Variable Name
  ||Default value
| ''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_ARCHITECTURE'' || The RPM package architecture. This may be set to "noarch" if you know you are building a noarch package. || -
| '''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_RELEASE''' || The RPM package release. This is the numbering of the RPM package itself, i.e. the version of the packaging and not the version of the content (see  CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_VERSION). One may change the default value if the previous packaging was buggy and/or you want to put here a fancy Linux distro specific numbering.|| 1
| '''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_LICENSE''' || The RPM package license policy. || "unknown"
| '''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_GROUP''' || The RPM package group (see /usr/share/doc/rpm-*/GROUPS ) || "unknown"
| '''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_VENDOR''' || The RPM package vendor || CPACK_PACKAGE_VENDOR if set or "unknown" if not set
| '''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_DESCRIPTION''' || The RPM package description || The content of CPACK_PACKAGE_DESCRIPTION_FILE if set or "no package description available" if not set
| ''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_REQUIRES'' || May be used to set RPM dependencies. see [[http://www.rpm.org/max-rpm/s1-rpm-depend-manual-dependencies.html RPM dependencies specification]]) for precise syntax. Note that you must enclose the complete requires string between quotes, for example:<br /> set(CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_REQUIRES "python >= 2.5.0, cmake >= 2.8")|| -
| ''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_PROVIDES'' || May be used to set the virtual packages provided by the RPM. It is somewhat complimentary to CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_REQUIRES, but note that you do not need to list things like libraries, etc. here, since rpmbuild will figure that out by itself when generating the RPM. Most packages leave this blank. NOTE: This variable was added in cmake 2.8.1 (see [[http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=9584 Bug9584]]).|| -
| ''CPACK_RPM_SPEC_INSTALL_POST'' || May be used to set an RPM post-install command inside the spec file. For example setting it to "/bin/true"  may be used to prevent rpmbuild to strip binaries (see [[http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=7435 Bug7435]])|| -
| ''CPACK_RPM_SPEC_MORE_DEFINE'' || May be used to add any %define lines to the generated spec file.|| -
| ''CPACK_RPM_USER_BINARY_SPECFILE'' || May be used to specify a user provided spec file instead of generating one. This is an feature which currently needs a patch see [[http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=9679 Bug9679]]|| -
| ''CPACK_RPM_GENERATE_USER_BINARY_SPECFILE_TEMPLATE'' || May be used to generate a '''template''' for a user provided spec file. This is an feature which currently needs a patch see [[http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=9679 Bug9679]]|| -
| ''CPACK_RPM_<POST/PRE>_<UN>INSTALL_SCRIPT_FILE'' || The content of the specified files will be embedded in the RPM spec file in the appropriate sections. This is an feature which currently needs a patch see [[http://public.kitware.com/Bug/view.php?id=8988 Bug8988]] || -
| ''CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_DEBUG'' || May be set when invoking cpack in order to trace debug informations during CPack RPM run. For example you may launch CPack like this ''cpack -D CPACK_RPM_PACKAGE_DEBUG=1 -G RPM'' || -
=== CPack RPM currently pending bugs/features ===

=== CPack RPM Historical Notes ===
CPackRPM included along with CMake 2.8.1 is provided many new features and bug fixes
--[[User:Erk|Erk]] 14:33, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
The binary CPackRPM generator should now work for many RPM based distribution and rpmbuild version.
[[User:Erk|Erk]] was granted CVS commit right for CPackRPM and he's maintaining and improving it as long
as spare time is available --[[User:Erk|Erk]] 14:30, 20 February 2010 (UTC)
The built-in CPack support for RPM is based on the work done in the [[CMakeUserUseRPMTools|RPM]] module.
The built-in CPack 2.6.x support for RPM is for '''binary package only''' but
the binary RPM package built faster using CPack than [[CMakeUserUseRPMTools]] module.
This restriction is due to both a lack of time of the implementor (--[[User:Erk|Erk]] 05:01, 7 September 2007 (EDT))
and some [[CMakeUserUseRPMTools#CPack_Built-in_RPM_support_design_issues|design issues]] in current CPack .
The [[CMakeUserUseRPMTools]] module should be usable both with CMake 2.4.x and forthcoming CMake 2.6.x.
For an enhanced version of these modules, take a look at this discussion http://www.cmake.org/pipermail/cmake/2007-July/014945.html.
