Dub supports package suppliers of type Dub Registry, Maven and File System. By default, Dub will search on Dub Registry https://code.dlang.org and hard-coded and user-set fallbacks.
Package suppliers can be specified either using argument
--registry or globally using setting
registryUrls. The type of the package supplier can be specified by prefixing the URL with
dub+ for type Dub Registry,
mvn+ for type Maven or using the
file:// scheme for type File System. Without a prefix, the type Dub Registry (
dub+) is assumed.
Dub packages are registered at a Dub Registry server like https://code.dlang.org. It isn't needed to prefix the address of a Dub Registry.
Dub can retrieve dub package zip archives located within a Maven repository like Nexus or Artifactory. The registry address needs to contain the Maven repository and a group id. The dub packages needs to be stored with a common group id, the dub package name as artifact id and dub version as artifact version. The dub package zip file must have the name
Dub package zip archive
calculator-1.0.0.zip is stored on Maven repository http://localhost:8040/maven/libs-release using group id
dubpackages. As registry address
mvn+http://localhost:8040/maven/libs-release/dubpackages needs to be specified.
dub fetch [email protected] --skip-registry=all --registry=mvn+http://localhost:8040/maven/libs-release/dubpackages
A folder containing dub packages as zip files could be specified as registry. The zip files must have the name
dub fetch calcula[email protected] --skip-registry=all --registry=file:///var/dubpackages
dub fetch calculat[email protected] --skip-registry=all --registry=file:///c:/d/dubpackages
