./devel/nsis, Scriptable system to build Windows installers

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.04, Package name: nsis-3.04, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

NSIS (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System) is a professional open-source tool
for the development of Windows installers. It is designed to be as small and
flexible as possible and is therefore highly suitable for Internet

An installer is not only the first experience of a user has with your product,
many software problems can also be solved by providing reliable installation
tools. NSIS allows you to create stable, quick and user friendly installers
that are capable of installing, uninstalling, setting system settings,
extracting files and more. With the NSIS scripting language you can implement
any custom logic you want.

The large collection of plug-ins, scripts and software in the Developer Center
helps you to build full featured installers and provides a solution for almost
every scenario.

Log message:
all: migrate homepages from http to https

pkglint -r --network --only "migrate"

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.

Log message:
nsis: SUBST in pre-configure doesn't work when NO_CONFIGURE=yes
   2018-07-04 15:40:45 by Jonathan Perkin | Files touched by this commit (423)
Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Log message:
Remove mk/find-prefix.mk usage from the devel category.

The find-prefix infrastructure was required in a pkgviews world where
packages installed from pkgsrc could have different installation
prefixes, and this was a way for a dependency prefix to be determined.

Now that pkgviews has been removed there is no longer any need for the
overhead of this infrastructure.  Instead we use BUILDLINK_PREFIX.pkg
for dependencies pulled in via buildlink, or LOCALBASE/PREFIX where the
dependency is coming from pkgsrc.

Provides a reasonable performance win due to the reduction of `pkg_info
-qp` calls, some of which were redundant anyway as they were duplicating
the same information provided by BUILDLINK_PREFIX.pkg.
