A front-end for every package manager

sysget is a bridge that lets you use one syntax to every package manager on every unix-based operating system.
You probably all know the problem when you are on a new distro and don't know anything about the package manager. With sysget you just need to remember one syntax for every package manager.
The syntax is mostly same with apt-get so it should be easy to use.

  • apt-get
  • xbps
  • dnf
  • yum
  • zypper
  • eopkg
  • pacman

  • pkg
  • chromebrew
  • homebrew
  • nix

  • clear package manager cache
  • update database
  • upgrade system
  • upgrade single package
