    Plow - The ontology package manager (by field33)

    Project mention: Protégé: A free, open-source ontology editor for building intelligent systems | | 2023-11-10

    Yes, consensus in ontology building has traditionally been a huge drag for the adoption of ontologies.

    However, I don't think the core issue is consensus itself, but instead that the prevalent form of consensus in the ontology authoring space is consensus by committee rather than consensus by usage (as is usual in the open source software space).

    That's why I've in the past been involved in creating Plow[0], a package manager for ontologies, with the aim of bringing the same "grassroots" nature and network effects that you find in other open source ecosystem to ontology engineering.


  • opm

    The Oxidized Package Manager

  • npt

    Nix Package Tool. A (humble) successor to linux's apt, which makes life easier when using nix as a package manager. (by woile)

    Project mention: Nix noob question | /r/Nix | 2023-07-06

    You can also just install flakes doing nix profile install . I wrote a tool to make it a bit easier, npt but it's completely optional. Once you install the packages with nix profile. Then in your repos you can use a flake with a devShell and run nix develop. Check to write your flakes.

  • clyde

    A cross-platform package manager for prebuilt applications

    Project mention: Self-replace: Utility library to implement processes that replace themselves | | 2023-05-14

    A little known fact about executables on Windows is that while it's not possible to remove a running executable, it's possible to rename it.

    I use this in [Clyde]( on Windows, when clyde needs to upgrade itself (which means uninstalling vN and installing vN+1) it renames itself from `clyde.exe` to `_clyde.exe`. I leave the old `_clyde.exe` around, but a nicer implementation could remove on the next start.
