What are Archlinux packages?

Arch Linux is a simple and lightweight Linux distribution, and was created with the KISS principle. A part of the base of Arch Linux is the pacman package manager, which then makes it easy to install and update applications and how they work with each other. The simplicity and open community is conducive to attracting developers as well as using the operating system on a day-to-day basis. Power users can make changes to how their systems works, both visually and technically.


What is Gitlab CI?

GitLab CI/CD helps you automatically build, test, deploy, and monitor your code. Run tests before every merge (Continuous Integration) to make sure the code is continuously strong. Set up your git repository to automatically trigger builds when you push commits (Continuous Delivery). Integrate behavior-driven development (BDD) frameworks like Cucumber or jBehave into your workflow to write more comprehensive automated acceptance tests that communicate functionality more effectively than plain unit tests.
