Depvault (open source project announcement)
« on: August 19, 2012, 05:35:00 am »
Hi all. I've created a new open-source project that may be of interested to developers.

Its a simple external dependency manager called "depvault". Its in the very early stages of development, but is somewhat usable now. Its not tied to any development environment (like Ivy is tied to Ant, or using svn:externals). It does require Python, and only runs on Unix-based OS's right now.

Documentation is spotty, but I've tried to do what I can to get it going.

Depvault allows you to add a collection of files with a 'name', a 'version' and optionally, a collection of tags. The tags allow you to have multiple variations of the same package/library. For instance, if you have libA-1.0.0, you could have libA-1.0.0 for 32bit and 64bit. Or different OS's. Or threaded and unthreaded. Or all of the above.

For those interested, here's the link to the SourceForge project:

I recommend reading the Wiki to get a general idea of how it works, why its different than what you may be doing now.

Thank you.
