penguins-eggs is a console utility, in active development, who let you to remaster your system and redistribuite it as iso images or from the lan via PXE remote boot.
The scope of this project is to implement the process of remastering your version of Linux, generate it as ISO image to burn on a CD/DVD or copy to a usb key to boot your system. You can also boot your egg - via remote boot - on your LAN.
All it is written in pure typescript, so ideally can be used with differents Linux distros. Yes, there are big differences about package manager used, but not so much in the way to work of bash and various programs used to build the iso.
penguins-eggs, at the moment 2020 june 21 is a working tool, yes can have again same troubles for people not in confidence with Linux system administration, but can be already extremely usefull, You can easily create your organization/school version of Linux and deploy it on your LAN, give it to your friends as usb key or publish eggs in the internet!
You can try now penguins-eggs, it is a console utility - no GUI - but don’t be scared, penguins-eggs is a console command - really very simple - if you are able to open a terminal, you can use it.
Starting with version 7.6.x, an addons architecture has been added to eggs, that allows third parties to develop extensions. Note that we currently have an extension for the theme that includes both calamares branding and installer link and icon. In addition, also as addon has been developed others addons, to chosen hoosing between GUI or CLI installation, adapd video resolution, etc.
Eggs was born on Debian, but you can use it on Devuan, Ubuntu and derivatives. I usually try it on Debian buster, Devuan beowulf and Ubuntu 20.04 focal before releases. It is known that it can also work with Debian stretch, Ubuntu bionic, Ubuntu xenial and derivatives like LinuxMint and Deepin. If you try a further distribution successfully, you can warn me to add it to the list.
Same iso images complete with eggs are loaded in the sourceforge page of the project.
You can use the same package for all distributions using deb, naturally choosing the appropriate architecture (i386/amd64).
Actually eggs is released both in deb package for i386 as amd64 architectures.
sudo dpkg -i eggs_7.5.122-1_amd64.deb
or, on a i386 system:
sudo dpkg -i eggs_7.5.122-1_i386.deb
Note about deb packages You can use the same package for all distributions using deb, naturally choosing the appropriate architecture (i386/amd64).
Notes on nodejs versions and i386 architecture . You can read more about at i386-nodejs.
If you have already nodejs installed, you can install penguins-eggs with the utility npm (node package manager).
