Napman is not a package manager. What it is is a very simplistic tool that will keep track of versions of software not present in your package repository. Each item in Napman is represented by a Python script, which knows how to determine the latest version, install, or uninstall. Such a script can, for example, scrape a web page to find the latest version, and then find a download link to an archive. Examples of such scripts can be found under the
Napman stores all its information by default under
$HOME/.napman. The data for a particular script is stored under
$HOME/.napman/$NAME. The Python script itself is at
$HOME/.napman/$NAME/__init__.py following convention.
$HOME/.napman/$NAME/latest.version stores the latest version of that software that Napman knows about. Also, sometimes
$HOME/.napman/$NAME/installed.version will store the version currently installed, but each script is free to determine this in its own way (e.g. by parsing the output from a command).
There are a lot of things Napman doesn’t do out of the box (e.g. signature verification, dependency management) although scripts can of course include these as well. As the name states, it should not be considered a proper package manager.
