archinstall.Profile

This class enables access to pre-programmed profiles. This is not to be confused with archinstall.Application which is for pre-programmed application profiles.

Profiles in general is a set or group of installation steps. Where as applications are a specific set of instructions for a very specific application.

An example would be the (currently fictional) profile called database. The profile database might contain the application profile postgresql. And that’s the difference between archinstall.Profile and archinstall.Application.
