Termux Extra Packages

an APT repository for Hugo and sift


This apt repository contains extra packages for Termux, an Android terminal emulator and Linux environment app.

Current packages

  • Sift 0.9.0, a fast and powerful alternative to grep (Github).

Former packages

The following packages have been removed from the repository. This usually happens once they can be found in the official termux packages repository.

  • Hugo v0.53/extended, a fast and flexible Static Site Generator written in Go (Github). Hugo is now part of the official termux packages repository! 🎉


Make sure you have installed all required packages to get access to the apt repository, namely curl to download the signing key and gnupg to import it:

pkg install curl gnupg

Add extras repository to Termux

Access the repo by adding a file named holehan.list to $PREFIX/etc/apt/sources.list.d containing the single line deb https://termux.holehan.org/ termux extras. Then import the GPG key the repository was signed with. Just follow the steps below:

mkdir -p $PREFIX/etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb https://termux.holehan.org/ termux extras" \
> $PREFIX/etc/apt/sources.list.d/holehan.list
curl https://termux.holehan.org/holehan.key -o holehan.key
apt-key add holehan.key
rm holehan.key # Delete the key after import

Installing packages


The Hugo package comes with bash-completion support and man pages. So you may want to install these packages as well:

pkg install bash-completion man hugo


  • You won’t be able to use the hugo bash-completion until you start a new Termux session.
  • If you want to use Hugo Pipes with postcss, you’ll have to adapt the postcss-cli shebang to Termux’s private space first. Repeat this step on each postcss update:

    termux-fix-shebang node_modules/postcss-cli/bin/postcss


Sift offers bash-completion support, too.

pkg install bash-completion sift

Upgrading packages

pkg upgrade

Remove extras repository from Termux

Remove the extras repository from Termux by

  • removing its entry from the packages sources list

    rm $PREFIX/etc/apt/sources.list.d/holehan.list
  • removing the signing key

    apt-key del C9681FDF7AEBD90F
