Recently in the Terragraph project I work on we changed from RPM to OPKG to removes some dependencies (e.g. perl) and make our overall image size smaller. I've never driven OPKG, but know RPM, so I made this cheat sheet for my shit memory.

I'm cheap so I don't have a Table plugin - So used Python to generate me one 🤠
