3 Listing Packages

Epkg provides several commands for listing packages.

In the buffer which lists packages, typing RET displays information about the package at point in another buffer.

User Option: epkg-list-exclude-types

The value of this option is a list of package types. Most commands that list packages exclude any package whose type matches one of the types listed here. The command epkg-list-packages-of-type does not respect this option, and you can tell the other commands to ignore it as well by using a prefix argument.

User Option: epkg-list-columns

This option lists the columns used in buffers that list packages.

Each element has the form (HEADER WIDTH SORT PROPS SLOT FORMAT).

If an elements SLOT is downloads, then the respective SORT should be epkg-list-sort-by-downloads. If an elements SLOT is stars, then the respective SORT should be epkg-list-sort-by-stars.

User Option: epkg-list-mode-hook

This hook is run after entering Epkg-List mode, the mode used in buffers that list packages.

Command: epkg-list-packages

This command displays a list of all mirrored (and possibly also shelved) packages.

Command: epkg-list-matching-packages

This command displays a list of packages whose summaries match a regular expression, which is read in the minibuffer.

Command: epkg-list-keyworded-packages

This command displays a list of packages that have a keyword set, which is read in the minibuffer.

Only keywords that are members of finder-known-keywords are offered as completion candidates, but you can also enter other keywords.

Command: epkg-list-packages-by-author

This command displays a list of packages which are authored or maintained by a person. The person, a name or email address, is read in the minibuffer.

By default all of the above commands omit shelved packages from their output. With a prefix argument or when epkg-list-packages-omit-shelved is nil, then they don’t omit any packages. However the following command ignores this option and always lists shelved packages when appropriate.

Command: epkg-list-packages-of-type

This command displays a list of packages of a certain type. The type is read in the minibuffer. To list all packages of a certain type and its subtypes use TYPE* instead of just TYPE.
