A Habitat .hart file screencast


#1

Hello -

I’ve recorded a screencast that covers Habitat .hart file internals.

In this screencast, I cover:

  • the main components of a .hart file

  • how to read a .hart file header

  • how to extract a .hart file without verification using simple Linux CLI tools

    • NOTE: in 99.999% of cases, you simply use hab install to extract and install a .hart file, but if you want to poke at the hart file internals, this screencast is for you.
  • how to verify and hash files from the hab CLI

Cheers -
Dave
