Simple tools for working with ROS source packages

Project description

ros-env is a collection of simple tools for working with ROS source packages.


The ros-get software uses pip to install itself. If you don’t have it yet, it is available as python-pip at Debian and Ubuntu. (Install using sudo apt install python-pip.)

Installation from PyPI

pip install ros-get

For development it is recommended to install ros-get with pip install -e. This installs a package in editable mode.

Installation from source

If you like to both use and hack ros-get, you can ‘install’ the software by pointing the installation to the development code.

  1. Make ros-get available locally, eg by download or cloning the repository, for example

    git checkout
  2. Install using pip with the editable option -e DIR.

    cd ros-get
    pip install --user -e .

    The final . says that pip should redirect the ros-get command relative to this directory (to ./src/ros-get).


TODO: create a workspace

ros-get install tue_config
ros-get remove tue_config
ros-get update

Comparison with tue-env

  • Separation between distro definition and the tool

  • Distro definition according to REP 143

  • Dependency definition according to REP 112

  • Parallel git clone/pull

  • Python (instead of bash)


pip uninstall ros-get
