Calamares is an installer framework. By design it is very customizable, in order to satisfy a wide variety of needs and use cases. Calamares aims to be easy, usable, beautiful, pragmatic, inclusive and distribution-agnostic.Calamares includes an advanced partitioning feature, with support 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. See http://calamares.io/about/

Thank you for this post. I avoided using the Calamares installer with Debian Live recently and went with the normal Debian installer, and I should have used Calamares in order to save my /home partition. I had a full backup, but it would have been nice not to need it. I will try this installer in the future.
