Project Description

Before the openSUSE 2022, we built a prototype of a command line interface for D-Installer just for demonstration purposes. It implements a limited set of functions and, apart from packaging changes, it has not received any relevant update for months.

Recently, we have redefined how the CLI should look. We want to rebuild the CLI from scratch with the new design in mind. However, it sounds boring for a Hack Week project so, why not try something different?

The idea of this project is to rebuild the D-Installer's CLI using Rust. We want to explore how hard it could be compared to Ruby, the main language for D-Installer and YaST. So, if you are interested in learning Rust (and the internals of D-Installer), feel free to join the project.

Goal for this Hackweek

  • Support for config set and config show.
  • Start the installation and track the progress.
  • (optional) Operate through an SSH connection
