Comprehensive guide to managing a Cloudsmith Repository

A Repository, or repo, is a storage location for software packages and containers.

Cloudsmith provides polyglot repositories that can contain packages of all support types. You can create an unlimited number of repositories; providing you with the flexibility to suit any use-case.


At Cloudsmith we use "repository" as a general term. We also refer to "registry" and "feed" in line with the format's specific nomenclature.
