Spack is a flexible package manager for HPC. It is intended to let you build for many combinations of compiler, architectures, dependency libraries, and build configurations, all with a friendly, intuitive user interface. Spack draws some ideas from Homebrew and Nix, with its own pure Python package format, extensive internal support for managing software dependency graphs, and powerful command line syntax.

For more information on Spack, look at the Spack Documentation.
