Using a Third-Party Package Manager

Using the package manager on its own isn’t necessarily a good idea, but it certainly isn’t a bad idea to get the ball rolling. For starters, you can use Pkg to find out what’s new in your library, or get a list of what’s on your wish list. If you can’t get Pkg to play ball, you can still get your own list of goodies by logging into your account and requesting that it do so. If all else fails, you can use a third-party package management tool. A good option is AttoBot, a free open-source package manager aimed at GitHub and Bitbucket users. Besides being a good package manager, AttoBot also provides release management functionality, making it easy to keep your software up to date.

Using a package management tool will help you get the best bang for your buck. If you’re stuck, a good first step is to run a debugging session that will allow you to see what’s not working. Then you can go about fixing what’s broken. If you’re still stuck, you can try running the package a few times until you see what’s working and what’s not. To do this, try out the pkg dev command line, which will show you exactly what’s going on in your file system. This is particularly useful if you’re stuck on a particular file.

If you’re looking for something more personalized, a package management tool like AttoBot can be used to automate package management tasks on your behalf. You can also try using a service like GitLab, which can provide a plethora of management tools to keep your repositories in check. If all else fails, a nifty tool like GitHub’s repo browser can be a lifesaver. It can be a pain to deal with multiple repositories on your local machine, so you’ll be glad to know that GitHub’s repo browser offers a centralized solution for your file management needs. If all else fails, you can always consult the documentation. The package aficionado has a long list of recommended reading material for all skill levels. The best ones come from GitHub users who are willing to share their knowledge and experiences. GitHub also has its own list of recommended open source packages for a variety of languages, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can always ask the community to help you out.
