PI Announcement

Today I just released PI, a MIT-pip-like command line program for Pharo Smalltalk.

PI stands for Pharo Install. It is written in bash and tested successfully under Windows (MSYS) and GNU/Linux. Currently supports listing and searching pacakges both in SmalltalkHub and GitHub, Pharo image installation, installing packages from SmalltalkHub, and more features comming. Everything is available through command-line options, such as pip, yum, apt, and other well-known package managers.

For parsing SmalltalkHub repository list, XMLLint is required. For parsing GitHub JSON results, jq is automatically downloaded if not found in the current directory.

You can download PI at the GitHub repository:

Try and play around, if you found any bugs or want to integrate new feature, feel free to submit PR.
