Description : Library for managing Mender artifact files
(https://codecov.io/gh/mendersoftware/mender-artifact) Go Report Card
Mender Artifacts Library Mender is an open source over-the-air (OTA)
software updater for embedded Linux devices. Mender comprises a client
running at the embedded device, as well as a server that manages
deployments across many devices.
This repository contains the artifacts library, which is used by the
Mender client, command line interface, server and for build integration
with the Yocto Project.
The artifacts library makes it easy to programmatically work with a
Mender artifact, which is a file that can be recognized by its .mender
suffix. Mender artifacts can contain binaries, metadata, checksums,
signatures and scripts that are used during a deployment. The artifact
format acts as a wrapper, and uses the tar format to bundle several
files into one.
In its simplest form, an artifact contains just a rootfs image, along
with its checksum, id and device type compatibility.
The artifacts library might also be useful for other updaters or
purposes. We are always happy to see other uses of it!
