Bazel is a free software tool that allows for the automation of building and testing of software. Similar to build tools like Make, Maven, and Gradle, Bazel builds software applications from source code using a set of rules.
It is not officially supported by the Power architecture, because of that, we provide the binary and the possibility to use the package through the Advanced Packaging Tool (APT), and Red Hat Package Manager (RPM).
In order for installation via APT or YUM, the user must add our repository to his system. To do this, just do the following steps.
Add the repository and install Bazel
To add the repository to the system, and to always obtain the new versions of software that we provide, follow these steps.

sudo apt-key add openpower-gpgkey-public.asc
After that, update the system using the command below:
