Romp Documentation

Installation & Configuration Script

Romp Documentation Note - This documentation is incomplete.

As we continue working on Romp, the documentation will be updated.

A romp package must contain an install.otter file.

The install.otter file in the package root contains the OtterScript of the plan that will be executed when the install command is invoked.

Basic Package File Installation

If your package contains only content files, then only a trivially simple install.otter script is needed.


This will invoke the Deploy-Content operation, which simply copies the contents of the package to the $WorkingDirectory. This is generally a commandline argument passed in to romp.

Infrastructure Configuration-only Installation

A package need not deploy any files; it can simply define configuration. This can be especially useful for sharing common configuration across packages using dependencies.
