❗️ THIS PROJECT IS IN HARD DEVELOPMENT AND BIG CHANGES MAY HAPPEN

(PLEASE GIVE YOUR IDEAS TO MAKE IT BETTER)

It finds equivalents of the things.

The programming world grows so fast. Loads of packages are being created day by day. And there are so many programming laguages around. When the developers try new languages, they need to reuse their experience.

equiv allows you to use your experience in all programming languages. And it makes you adopt a new language faster.

Let's say you are a Rubyist who wants to develop a web application with Python. Since you are a Ruby user, you already know Sinatra, but don't know the Python world. Just use equiv and it will find you the Python equivalent of Sinatra.

equiv sinatra of python

It finds the equivalent:

ruby/sinatra is a micro web framework
equivalent in python is are:
- flask
  > pip install flask

And also you can just use the concepts like micro_web_framework

equiv micro_web_framework of ruby

It finds the best match.

equivalent in ruby are:

- sinatra
  > gem install sinatra

Roadmap

  • Add more and more languages and libraries
  • Data is built into the binary, it may be a remote service or another repo which can be updated with a command like equiv update. Now the binary has to be updated when registry updated.
