I did my first OpenBSD port today, there are corners to be rounded and further tests to be made though!

It was not that hard given than sysutils/screenfetch was already in the ports, i just had to adapt things.

Neofetch has just been added to ports CVS [1]. Thanks to everybody involved, especially @bcallah !

I'm now working with upstream for an improved support: some changes have already been merged [2], others are pending [3].

@julianaito a while ago I had wrote (logo looked worse than awful) a similar yet simpler utility for NetBSD, largely inspired by bsdinfo for FreeBSD:

You may want to consider writing an equivalent basic sysinfo tool for OpenBSD: I'm sure that an ISC license would be appreciated, so would be C in place of bash

@sehnsucht I can read and tweak C a bit (like octodon.social/web/statuses/10) but otherwise i write about 1 CVE/100 lines :)

Furthermore neofetch is pretty popular (even though screenfetch is better in a certain way)!

@julianaito See, I told you it wasn't out of your reach.

Add yourself as MAINTAINER.

@bcallah I added myself as MAINTAINER and tested my port in a fresh vm, and it's good. Should i directly mail my work at -ports or would you prefer to review it beforehand to limit public noise ?

@julianaito Send it to me only if you think it needs an extra round of review. Otherwise send it directly to ports.

@bcallah Well, since it's my first one, i'm gonna send it to you.

Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
