Changed name from vpm to vbm so it can coexist with original, already in void repos...
vbm - An XBPS package management helper for vb-linux and VoidLinux
vbm is a simple to use, daily-driver enhancement to the awesome XBPS (X Binary
Package System), initially designed as a helper tool for use with VoidLinux.
Feel free to think "Void Package Management" or something if it helps you
remember its name, but please note that it's NOT a "package manager" in the
nitpickers understanding of the word - especially vbm shouldn't be confused with
XBPS - vbm is just an addon helper tool for XBPS to make your life easier.
vbm trying install package but...
vbm automatic updating xbps while updating system...
vbm installing package...
Motivation to write vbm
I initially found XBPS to have a steep learning-curve, so I wanted to ease the life of new VoidLinux users, and XBPS users in general. Please don't feel afraid to look up the corresponding XBPS commands it translates to, or use vbm --show-translations so you even see the translations already when using vbm help. It has been said that vbm will ease the transition from Debian's APT, and some other user-friendly repository/package-managers.
vbm requires BASH, the Bourne Again SHell, which should be installed by default on a new VoidLinux system. You also will need git and xcheckrestart both provided by xtools package to obtain a clone of the vbm GitHub repository. (see "Installation" section, below).
Or you can just grab vbm and paste it anywhere in your system.
1. Install xtools via
for xcheckrestart functions etc...
$ xbps-install -S xtools
2. Clone vbm repository
$ git clone https://codeberg.org/oSoWoSo/vbm.git
3. Enter the cloned repo and install vbm
$ cd vbm $ chmod +x vbm $ make install
3a. Remove vbm
If you want to remove vbm, just use make to remove it. Make sure you are in the cloned directory first, then run:
$ make uninstall
Rainbows and unicorns, indeed. If you like colorized output, please see the --color=true option, too! All vbm options try to have human readable and easy to remember syntax, no --long-option-with-multiple-complex-words, no need to even prefix arguments with --, vbm just tries to do its best it can to understand the user (there are some command-line-switches, though, see vbm help).
Also vbm will ask for password if needed.
