gentoopm

GentooPM is a wrapper for API of Gentoo package managers (Portage, PkgCore and historically Paludis). It has historically served two purposes:

  1. Making it possible to easily write apps that can utilize any of the available PMs.
  2. Replacing the awful API provided by package managers (especially Portage) with something more Pythonic, easier to use and more readable.

The project provides a gentoopmq tool providing basic lookups into the PM data. Most importantly, it provides an IPython-friendly gentoopmq shell command that can be used to play with the API.

The project is currently in keep-alive mode. It is updated to keep existing consumers working but no new features are implemented. Paludis support is no longer tested and is behind other PMs, primarily because Paludis is no longer maintaining Gentoo ebuild support and has not been updated to support new EAPIs at the time of writing.

The author's recommendation is to use PkgCore directly.
