How do I update pijul?


I installed pijul 0.3.3 some time ago using cargo, now if I want to update it. Do I have to use ‘cargo install pijul --force’ to overwrite the old version or is there a better way of doing it?

Also should I be using cargo to manage pijul or is it better to just fetch the source?

I’m on Fedora and there’s not a COPR so I may make one (and learn how in the meantime :^)



Hi! Good question.

I install it myself using cargo install, but that’s also because I frequently change it.

There is a package for NixOS.

Having packages for other distributions would be absolutely fantastic. The only reason we don’t build them now is because of our limited resources.
