NPG - The package manager for Oracle PL/SQL

I finally got the most rough edges done now. After a long time of trying to find some spare time during the evenings, I have completed what I think, has been a great feature missing from PL/SQL for a long long time: A real package manager. I've always believed that PL/SQL has a great community and that there exists a lot of packages out there, that deserves a broader audience. Not only that, but it needs to be easier to share and install these community packages.

Say welcome to NPG, an oracle package manager for PL/SQL. It supports most of the basic features that package managers from other languages does (NPM, RubyGems, PIP etc) and I will add more and more functionality to it, over the coming weeks.

Building something new and fun for pl/sql

So having done a lot coding in different languages (recently python, ruby and javascript) I came to the conclusion that pl/sql is missing an important functionality or addition if you like.

So for a while now, whenever I've had some spare time (a bit difficult with 3 small kids) I've been coding up a fun little project.

It is now pretty close to beta testing, and so this week I will finishing of the rough edges and bring a couple of small teasers as well
