Documentation for using libunicornpkg’s remote submodule.


Installs a package from a remote.

This function traverses /etc/unicorn/remotes for all text files that contain URLs to a package remote.

For each remote, it tries requesting the remote’s URL plus the package’s name. If it fails with a Not Found error, it moves on. If it gets a good response, then it installs the package.


local unicorn = dofile("/lib/unicorn/init.lua")\
unicorn.remote.install("aukit") -- installs MCJack123's AUKit, assuming the default remote is present
