The selected check boxes determine which packages are required for the project.

To indicate that a package is required for the project, select the check box of the appropriate package and click OK.


Packages can have the following statuses:

  • Available: When the package is installed. This does not indicate any relation to the project.
  • Missing: When the package is required by the project, but it is not installed.
  • Unavailable: When the package is required by the project, but it is no longer available in GetIt.

Install button

This button installs one or many Missing packages that are required by the project.

You can either select Yes to install the missing dependencies or select No and install those dependencies later from the GetIt Dependencies page, using the Install All Missing Packages button.
