The universal installer framework
Calamares is a distribution-independent system installer, with an advanced partitioning feature for both manual and automated partitioning operations.
It is the first installer with an automated “Replace Partition” option, which makes it easy to reuse a partition over and over for distribution testing.
Calamares is designed to be customized by distribution maintainers without need for cumbersome patching, thanks to third party branding and external modules support.
