The Cookbooks project attempts to provide the required dataset in order to compile or install programs from source, or from another location - recipes for installation and instructions on how to build something. In some ways the Cookbooks project is similar to the LFS/BLFS (Linux from Scratch / Beyond Linux from Scratch) project and can be seen as complementary to these projects. The Cookbooks project currently has exactly 3399 "cookbooks" registered. For more documentation, see the link called documentation on at the bottom right side of the webpage here. This will also include all registered programs, their version number and the remote URL to that respective program.
