Project description


This project is in “Development Status :: 2 - Pre-Alpha”.

Main Philisophy

This document desribes the main philisophy why xppkg was created.

Main Pain

Installation of Scenery, Aircraft, NavData, Plugins are a pain. The sim-community is flooded with good (and bad) quality resources, and arranging and browsing all sites to find your own golden installation is always a pain. After returning to X-plane from the FS world after a few years, nothing changed.

  • XPpkg is a hassle-free X-Plane package installer, much alike pip in python: to download, install and upgrade various X-Plane packages from various internet sources.
  • XPpkg for developers of packages for X-Plane should be a hassle free way to distribute their packages


Main inspiration comes from my work within the *NIX world (That is essential Linux and the *NIX with the best graphical UI on top: Mac OSX) and python.
