Python wrapper for APIs of Gentoo package managers

Project description

GentooPM is a wrapper for API of Gentoo package managers (Portage, PkgCore and historically Paludis). It has served two purposes:

  1. Making it possible to easily write apps that can utilize any of the available PMs.

  2. Replacing the awful API provided by package managers (especially Portage) with something more Pythonic, easier to use and more readable.

The project provides a gentoopmq tool providing basic lookups into the PM data. Most importantly, it provides an IPython-friendly gentoopmq shell command that can be used to play with the API.

The project maintenance is slowly resuming but the code needs major cleanup.
