    bagpack is a versatile local package manager. bagpack has 2 ideas at its core ,

    • Versatile - Don't care what the package is. Just deliver it.
    • Local - No Internet connection needed. Everything is local to the machine.

    Inspiration

    npm and bower are the main inspirations for bagpack. I have ended up using them atleast once a day and there are times when I have to install packages from them when my internet is down. So , bagpack's main purpose is to fill the gap left by them.

    bagpack got its name from the bagpack character of the TV Series named Dora the Explorer. Yeah ! bagpack provides all the necessary things for your quest. We even got the map inside the bagpack.

    npm install -g bagpack
