Installing emacs packages on template qube

How would you go about installing an emacs package on a template machine? These are my thoughts:

(1) The worst option is to grant the template machine temporary internet access and install the packages.

(2) so, you can git clone the packages (say over a whonix session, and then move the files to the template machine). Then do a local install of the cloned packages. This approach may lead to a lot of work.

(3) use the proxy server - much like for python packages (pip install --proxy=http: packagename). However, I do not know how to do this.

This is my user-case:

I have a template debian qube used by two (or three) VMs. These VMs are for code development, code testing etc. The VMs have no internet access (so that, for example, there is no sneaky way for VS code to send telemetry anywhere…). It would be great to never grant these machines internet access - and to configure emacs on the template machine once and for all, so that I basically have the same configuration on all dev machines.

For python packages, I already do something on these lines: create some base environments on the template that can be activated on the VMs.

I don’t use emacs, but in general, what emacs packages you already can’t find in template available repositories?
Or, better, what are you trying to achieve?

@enmus, thank you for considering the question. As far as I understood, none of emacs packages are listed in template available repositories. But it would be fantastic if I am wrong here. The repos I know for emacs are:

In the end, there is a way to tell emacs to use the qubes proxy (like in pip). Following:

The code below worked on my emacs when placed on the init.el config file:
(setq url-proxy-services’(
; (“no_proxy” . “^\(localhost\|10.*\)”)
(“http” . “”)
(“https” . “”)

(require 'package)

; NOTE: can include here local folder – see elpy instructions for manual download
(setq package-archives '(
; (“melpa” . “Package Listing”)
(“org” . “Index of /elpa/”)
; (“elpa” . “GNU ELPA Packages”)

Sorry if I’m wasting your time, but what you get when you type sudo dnf search elpa and sudo apt search elpa in your fedora and debian templates’ terminals? Not packages you’d want?

@buvivv Thanks for the post, got it working for me.

@enmus Basically, emacs has its own package repositories. sudo dnf search elpa won’t work since that command is for linux packages.

So, noting of these doesn’t satisfy your needs:

Sorry if this is noise
