Tusk

Tusk is a JavaScript package manager. It is written entirely in JavaScript and based on CommonJS API's with few extensions.

Tusk provides a tusk command with the following subcommands:

  • install: downloads and installs a package and its dependencies
  • list: lists all installed packages
  • update: downloads the newest package catalog
  • search: {keyword}, --and, --or, --{key} {value}
  • init: initializes a Narwhal package/project directory
  • clone: clones a package from its version control system.
  • catalog: lists all packages in the catalog

Note: on Github, relative links on this page will only work when viewing this page at the canonical location of this file.

Creating packages and catalogs for Tusk is simple. Tusk supports alternate and multiple-catalogs and seamless independent package installations (seas, similar to Python virtual environments).

Tusk predates the CommonJS Packages/1.0 specification and has not yet been updated.

Tusk depends on Tom Robinson's zipjs package, the Narwhal Library narwhal-lib, and an HTTP module that supports the Narwhal http module's API. These are all bundled with Narwhal proper, but can also be provided by other platforms.
