Stow Manager - A Simple Package Manager

I've just released on github a script for which adds some important features (like repository support) on top of the GNU stow package manager:

This is a working prototype of an application level based package manager based on GNU stow (

stow installs a specific version of a program from the so called stow dir to a destination directory.

The intent of this prototype was to find out if adding missing functionality to the core stow application (like repository support) would be a simple replacement for non-root installations of software on a Linux system.

If stow is a very simplified dpkg, then stow-manager is a very simplified (and dumb) version of apt-get.

See the github repository for the code (rather large bash script) and documentation.
