Novus

A blazingly fast and futuristic package manager for windows.

Why Novus

Fast

Using Novus, you can install packages using multiple threads, making it around 8 times faster than normal downloads.

Silent Installations

Novus installs apps silently, in a manner such that users don't need to accept any prompts during the installation.

Non-Admin Installations

Novus supports non-admin installations. You don't have to go through the effort of opening a separate admin terminal.

Portable Installations

Novus supports the installation of portable packages.

Open Source

Novus is open-source, making it easier to contribute and add packages to the manifest.

Package Manifests

All of Novus's packages are updated and monitored daily, using a fail-safe auto-updating script.

Difference from Chocolatey

Speed

Novus is significantly faster than chocolatey due to it's multithreaded nature.

Non-Admin Installations

Using Novus, you can install packages without having to use an admin terminal. Novus automatically elevates to an admin terminal without bypassing UAC.

Additional Features

Novus has a lot of other useful features. For example, Novus can easily quit and forcequit applications with just one command.

This can be done using the official installer or via powershell.
