Topic: How to build a fork of github openwrt/packages
I am new to openwrt and I added some functionality to the tinyproxy package.
Before submitting a pull request I want to test my changes.
I forked the github openwrt/packages repo but I am not clear how to have opkg install from the fork.
The opkg documentation I found refers to ipk files and I am confused how this repo ties in.
All the tutorials I can find in the wiki seems to describe a process that builds a firmware image.
I am trying to only build something that I can install via opkg as I don't want to have to reflash my router for testing.
I have a docker instance of noonien/docker-openwrt-buildroot but I think this is still trying to build a flash image.
Can anyone point me to some resources that will help?
