I attempted to create a generic mod manager

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/linux_gaming

Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • GitHub repo ModBuddy

    Mod buddy is a mod manager created with extensibility in mind

    I've seen that case insensitivity is a big deal (which is a shame, but i guess that is due to different name handling on *tux/Windows. Luckily it isn't the worst problem to handle, and can be followed here

  • GitHub repo steamtinkerlaunch

    Linux wrapper tool for use with the Steam client for custom launch options and 3rd party programs

    You may want to get in touch with u/frostworx to see about getting this to play nice with SteamTinkerLaunch. I for one would massively appreciate seamless Linux modding. It's the one and only thing I miss about Windows

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • GitHub repo loot

    A load order optimisation tool for the Elder Scrolls (Morrowind and later) and Fallout (3 and later) games.

    This looks great!! I haven't dived into the realm of linux modding mainly because of having to run NMM2 and LOOT through lutris. (haven't tried Vortex with the integrated LOOT)

  • GitHub repo GameHub

    All your games in one place

    Nice! GameHub has Overlays which is similar.

  • GitHub repo CKAN

    The Comprehensive Kerbal Archive Network (by KSP-CKAN)

    I've always been a big fan of CKAN so take a look there for inspiration.

  • GitHub repo smerge

    Smart Merge

    I also have attempted such a thing, and as a result I have something you may find useful: https://github.com/josephsmendoza/smerge the idea behind this program is to intelligently resolve program folder merging for package managers which is what a mod manager is.
