Creating a private apt repository with reprepro

Package Hub


With reprepro, creating a repository involves just a few steps. The functions described in this article show only a small part of the full potential of the tool. The reprepro tool also lets you divide a repository into categories, such as main and optional. If packages from other sources are needed, reprepro can mirror them into your own repository.

Additionally, managing different distributions is on reprepro's feature list. The commands for integrating and removing packages reduce the administrative burden and facilitate the handling of both packages and the repository.
