I've been working on a project called curdling. It's a package manager for python. It's pretty similar to pip but with a brand new design and way less lines of code. It uses exciting concurrency technology to provide a reliable and fast installer for Python packages.
The current feature set includes:
* Robust Concurrent model: it’s FAST! * Really good Error Handling and Report; * Conflict resolution for repeated requirements; * Distributed Cache System that includes a built-in cache server; * Simple command line interface; * Usage of bleeding edge technology available in the Python community; * Concurrent and Parallel, but Ctrl-C still works;
It's currently a work in progress but I'm pretty excited about its stability and performance. There's a good amount of documentation available at
This project uses both wheel and distlib packages as part of the dependency stack. I'm working on an essay about my experience with both libraries that I'm planning to share on another opportunity. It will probably be available under the "Design and Implementation" section in the main website. Feel free to check it out right now if you don't want to wait:
Any feedback is highly appreciated.
