aero

pagkage manager recycler

The aero command line package recycler. It uses package managers you already have.

Instead of having to consult several package managers when you are looking for something you can now search through all of them using the same commands and find similar results using the same tool.

When you type aero search php, aero already knows which package managers are installed and starts collecting information from each package manager while caching the results for when you haven't found exactly what you're looking for yet. Other advanced features besides caching includes intuitive help and command line arguments parsing, loading configurations from file, bash and zsh autocompletion, results paging so that you don't have to always scroll up when the information you need is right at the top of the results that just came flying by but you also wont get dumped into a pager, of your choice I should add, if the results would fit on a single page and doesn't require paging. These are just some of the features already incorporated to enhance your user experience setting new standards for enjoyable software management.

Even though aero is some serious machining it will only focus on the task its set out to do, to recycle your existing package managers and you can rest assured/or continue to worry whichever might be the case, as aero will leave the heavy lifting up to the software partners already tasked with the use case requirements and instead only focuses on the end user requirements through consistent interfaces, intuitive interactions and all the information you require at your fingertips enabling you to make the decisions you need to accomplish the tasks at hand.:

Platform

Written in python using v 2.7, this may or may not be the entry requirement for now, on Mac OS X currently and the excellent IDE PyCharm by JetBrains which you may consider highly recommended do give it a try. The *nixes will likely be included soon, there exists no bias to the MS platforms only less accessible as a product of choice and opportunity I guess. Feel free to suggest other usages or specific requirements you might have.

After some serious deliberations even though the majority of the team has zero to no python experience at all it will never the less prevent us, like the good professional programmers we are, from using the best hammer for hitting the particular nails or fingers. This has been an interesting learning curve so far and I have to agree python is a pleasure and does suite the requirements like a glove and now that we are empowered with some new lingo like "pythonic" and "tupels" not to mention "generators" and the other "PEP" "recipes" of convenience we make no claim that this is an exemplary python implementation but we sure as the indents are important will try. Feel free to pin-point any obvious mistakes by raising an issue so we may apologise or be damned to continue in err without permission as we continue under assumption that this is the pythonic way. Now I guess I should go read the book perhaps =)

Disclaimer

Even though using aero can cause you or your system no harm, by design and while we are using it everyday for a one stop interface to finding the software we need to install we need to warn you about two things:

  1. This is still a work in progress and you are welcome to pitch in, lend a hand, test, report bugs, request features or make a donation but keep in mind that you will find unfinished and more than likely some broken things.
  2. May lead to compulsive package installation disorders can cause dependency and some serious addictions, use at your own risk.

Installation

aero install with pip (egg and chicken)

aero installation if you already have aero - from version 0.0.1a1 pip will always reinstall:

$ aero install pip:https://github.com/Aeronautics/aero/tarball/develop

aero install with pip --upgrade - upgrade aero and dependencies - from version 0.0.1a1:

$ aero install pip:https://github.com/Aeronautics/aero/tarball/develop === "--upgrade"

pip installation

aero can be installed directly from github via pip with the following command:

$ pip install --upgrade https://github.com/Aeronautics/aero/tarball/develop

through easy_install

if you prefer using easy_install the following command will download and install aero from github:

$ easy_install https://github.com/Aeronautics/aero/tarball/develop

from git repository

Clone the repo from github or fork it first and then clone your copy if you want to help out with pull requests. Then just run the setup.py with install:

$ ./setup.py install

Running aero

On execution of aero with no requirements a short usage instruction will be presented:

$ aero

aero v0.0.1 alpha 0

usage: aero [-h] [-v] [-p PAGER] [-d [{Brew,Port,Pip,Npm,Gem,Colour}]] [-i]
              [-c {bash,zsh}]
              command [mngr:] package ...
aero: error: too few arguments

Providing aero with the customary --help argument will give more detailed information:

$ aero --help

                        default: None


   ┌────────────────┐
┌──┘ Commands Usage └───────────────────────────────────────────────────────┐
└───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘

Command arguments:

  The aero commands are based on the typical package manager
  commands followed by the package name(s) to perform the task on.
  At least one command is required but several packages can be
  processed simultaneously.
  Use 'aero command --help' to get further details for specific
  commands.

  command [mngr:]package
                        Optionally provide the specific manager to use
                        prepended to the package name(s) with a colon ':' or
                        alternatively aero will execute the command against
                        all enabled package managers.

    choose one of the following valid aero commands:

    search              Do an aero search for packages
    install             Do an aero install package(s)
    info                Do an aero info for packages

Configuration argument:
  command [mngr:]package
                        Optionally provide the specific manager to use
                        prepended to the package name(s) with a colon ':' or
                        alternatively aero will execute the command against
                        all enabled package managers.

    choose one of the following valid aero commands:

    search              Do an aero search for packages
    install             Do an aero install package(s)
    info                Do an aero info for packages

Configuration argument:

  It is possible to load aero configuration from an input file.

  @filename             Append "key, value" (where applicable) to a file one
                        argument, value pair per line. To tell aero which
                        file to use for configuration specify the path and
                        file name prefixed with an "@".

Commands

With aero you can expect to use the common commands and we will translate them to the package manager specific instructions where they may have chosen to deviate from the norm. Currently the following commands are implemented:

Usage:

$ aero <command> <packages...>

Where packages are one or more package names optionally prefixed with the specific package manager, colon separated. The mngr:package format produced in search is used to instruct a specific package manager with any commands. Omitting the prefix instruction will result in all active package managers being instructed to complete the task. This may or may not necessarily have the desired effect. Multiple packages from different package managers can all be processed with one aero command.

search

To search for a package which will produce a list with the package manager prefixed the package name by \: and a short description of the package.

install

To instruct the installation of a given package.

info

To obtain more detailed information regarding a given package now also available for pip.

Package managers

The following package managers have been recycled, more will follow. Let us know if your favourite packaging tool is missing or submit a pull request with new adapter you'd like added.

Special notes:

Brew has the inclination to only return the package names on search, in addition to retrieval of the package names aero continues to further query info on each package from where it is able to parse and present slightly more usable information. Instead of just calling the info command on the package manager we execute aero info instead which means that all the information for every package listed in the search results is already cached and retrievable instantaneously.

Special notes:

The Pip adaptor does not use subprocess to execute pip command line interface but instead we use the pip library directly. This strategy now enables us to get pip info, functionality that is not exposed on the CLI but very much available as you can see, marking a huge advance for aero.

Special notes:

Similar to brew, with pyrus you are also required to call info should you require more details about a particular package. Luckily aero is more considerate and will call info on your behalf to provide you with more information in the search results.

Going forward

As well as extending the current functionality we also plan to support:

  • fink
  • yum
  • composer local

Known issues

Items that require some attention: (Let us know if you want to tackle any of these)

  • The pass through is dodgy, some issues with argparse, passing --long-name-args in quotes work but -l short name fails.
  • Autocomplete should complete known packages obtained through searching.
  • No unit tests as yet
  • Limited to no codedocs

Releases

New releases are made available on a regular basis as time allows.
