Mixing refers to composing a custom, versioned image of Clear Linux* OS for a specific use case. While upstream Clear Linux OS provides options to install bundles for various capabilities, some developers and OSVs may wish to either augment the operating system with functionality from their own packages or modify the structure of current bundles. Mixing offers a method to add capabilities while retaining the ability to stay up to date with an upstream version of Clear Linux OS.

Mixing is a multi-step process that starts with installing the mixer bundle using swupd. You will also need a working knowledge of RPMs and how Clear Linux OS bundles work. For a detailed guide on how to create a Clear Linux OS mix, visit Use the mixer tool.
