Commandline tool for installing CTAN packages (Linux only)

Postby TimeMen » Sun May 13, 2018 8:51 pm

Hey there,
may you are annoyed to install packages manually from the CTAN FTP server.
Then you can use the ctan package installer, available from GitHub.
Created it the last days and set the finish commit some hours ago.

It is working for me well, but now I need your opinion to this tool.
It's a commandline tool (similar to yaourt/pacman/etc.) written in Bash (so Linux only).
All you have to know is written in the wiki and help page.

Hope you'll give it a try and report issues/bugs/tips/ideas, so that it becomes more and more comfortable to use and free of bugs.

Link to command line tool:

This should be no advertisement, just a quick introduction to the tool. May it's one day useful for you.
It would be great, if you can give me some feedback.

Yours sincerly,
