Project description

A new type of package manager

Still under development


Package management works but it is far from ideal. There is no simple, free, platform agnostic way to distribute software. I want to fix this.

Enter Packer, a package manager built from scratch to support simple multiplatform software installation.

It should be:

  • Simple
  • Extendable
  • Multiplatform (Starting with Windows, OSX, Ubuntu)


Install using the following command:

pip install packer


  • Python (must be on PATH)
  • pip
  • pywin32 (Windows)
