Sorry if this is answered somewhere else, but I can’t seem to figure out how to install Linux packages during a netlify build. Specifically, I am trying to use zola, which is written in rust, so I can’t use pip, ruby gems, or npm.
I followed the instructions here and it appears to work, but I don’t understand why.
ZOLA_VERSION environment variable treated specially by Netlify? If so, maybe it should be documented on the configuration variables documentation section: https://docs.netlify.com/configure-builds/environment-variables/#netlify-configuration-variables.
Looks like someone opened a PR to achieve that last year:
If you wanted to open a PR for the “included software” docs in our build image, I’m sure the team would appreciate it!
Ahmazing, thank you so much!!!
