Yes, I have been aware of that. I guess this is an uncommon use
case though, since I would expect that development happens as usual
and then to bundle your application you run chicken-install -deploy.

The only downside I see here is that we reuse the usual code path
and recompile, instead of just copying the necessary files over
from the local repository.

So I guess we are on the same page here.

I am not sure whether the current db entries in a chicken repository
are sufficient to extract already installed files and copy them to
the deployment target. I will have to investigate on this. Maybe
someone else here knows more without digging too deep into it?

Kind regards,


May you be peaceful, may you live in safety, may you be free from
suffering, and may you live with ease.
