Bazel rules for building tar, zip, deb, and rpm for packages.

Use for discussion.

CI: Build status

Basic rules

Package building rules

  • pkg - Rules for building packages of various types.
  • examples - Cookbook examples for using the rules.

As of Bazel 4.x, Bazel uses this rule set for packaging its distribution. Bazel still contains a limited version of pkg_tar but its feature set is frozen. Any new capabilities will be added here.
