Create development overlays for the FreeBSD ports tree

Project description

Create development overlays for the ports tree.

Bandar creates a temporary unionfs overlay with your development tree on top and the upstream ports tree on the bottom, allowing you to quickly and easily test, develop and deploy new ports. Bandar takes advantage of the fuse-based unionfs copy-on-write feature unavailable in the kernel variant, and provides extra security and stability by running in userspace.

The word “bandar” is Persian for a port or haven, etymologically meaning an enclosed area.
