Each time I have to reinstall my computer or new incomers arrive in our team, we install cygwin, and each time, we forget to install a package.
We can write somewhere useful packages, (i even just did it ^^).
But is there a way, to package cygwin packages, for example a texte file with all useful cygwin packages, that we give as argument setup.exe, or something like that ?
It seems to be possible by using the –packages (-P) parameter for the Cygwin Setup.exe. A nice sample batch script can be found here:
setup.exe ^ --no-shortcuts ^ --quiet-mode ^ --disable-buggy-antivirus ^ --packages ^ aria2,^ atool,^ autoconf,^ automake,^ autossh,^ [...]
Of course compiling a list of your favorite packages would still be needed, which can be done using cygcheck -c.
