General purpose package and dependency manager based on MongoDB
Artifact PonyExpress (or simply Pony) is an artifact repository and package manager that aims to simplify software modules integration into big projects. It is designed with native (read modern C++) development in mind but it is usefull everywhere there is an environment to setup in order to transform versioned data using any software.
Note: As pony works well with binary components, the transformation function (the tool used to transform data) itself may be a packaged component.
Pony use MongoDB as backend to store your packages and meta-informations so a running local or remote MongoDB database is needed in order to use pony. The pony’s MongoDB database is the pony_store and the only collection it uses as a repository is named packages.
You can perform two main operation from the pony command line:
- charge the pony to deliver your artifact to clients.
- deliver dependencies of the working artifact to users.
