Noccy's HotFixes

How do I install the hotfix utility?

Automated installation

The automated installer has been tested on Ubuntu 16.04.1, and it does all the heavy lifting for you, including dependencies.

$ sudo apt install curl
$ curl -O
$ chmod +x
$ ./

Manual install

If you would like to install it manually:

$ curl -O ~/bin/hotfix
$ chmod +x ~/bin/hotfix

Using Hotfixes

To use a hotfix, you need to have the publishers public key imported. For my hotfixes, you need to do:

$ curl | gpg --import -

Next, create a file at ~/.hotfix.conf containing:


And finally, apply the desired hotfix:

$ hotfix apply noccy:install-processing

Without a defined alias you would do:

$ hotfix apply

Publishing Hotfixes

  1. Create your hotfix in a text editor. You can use one of the examples as a starting point.
  2. Test the fix locally, using hotfix apply -I <file> to make sure it works as intended.
  3. Once everything works as intended, sign the hotfix using hotfix sign <file> and upload the .fix.signed file to your location of choice.
  4. Put a link to your public key in your forum signature, on your about page etc.
  5. Publish your fix together with the relevant information.
