Yocto tip: How to temporarily add a package to an imageđź’ˇ

Say you are developing a product and want to quickly add a package to an image for testing/debugging, but probably don’t want this as part of the production image. The easiest way is to add the following to local.conf:

IMAGE_INSTALL:append = " stress-ng"

If you want to add a package permanently, then creating a custom image recipe is the way to go.
