    https://github.com/rockerbacon/modorganizer2-linux-installer This works perfectly, but it starts out slow.

  • proton-shunt

    A small C program that allows running alternate executables with Proton (Steam Play for Linux)

    There is simply no need for native modding tools, when we aren't dealing with native games, IMO. Better to just use a shunt program, to trick Steam into launching the Windows mod manager directly. Then you know it's going to work as Valve intended, and you can manage everything through Steam like normal.

  • CKAN

    The Comprehensive Kerbal Archive Network (by KSP-CKAN)

    The best mod manager I have ever used is ckan, consider extending it to cover other games. At the very least take a poke around at how it works and steal some ideas from it.

  • modorganizer

    Mod manager for various PC games. Discord Server: https://discord.gg/ewUVAqyrQX if you would like to be more involved

  • portmod

    I don't know if it can help your project, but there is a cross-platform CLI package manager for mods called portmod.

  • ModBuddy

    Mod buddy is a mod manager created with extensibility in mind

    It's exciting to see someone else try to tackle the same problem as me. Approximately a year ago i also attempted to implement a mod manager for Linux, but the progress halted a bit when i got satisfied with how i could mod STALKER Anomaly (plus some other errands which ate up my time).

  • InfluxDB
