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.

For now the features that a there, are search, install, list and delete. Next week update will be added to the CLI.

The repository currently lists 2 packages, but I will add a lot more myself over the next few days, and I hope that people will start adding their own packages as well, as soon as I get the sign-up form created.

So I hope you will give it a try, see if it delivers, and report back if not. You can use my github repository to add any issues you may find, and I will make sure to fix them as soon as possible.

Get started with the documentation and install some packages
