  • Ketarin

    Free Windows Website

    Ketarin is a small application which automatically updates and optionally installs setup packages by monitoring web pages for changes. As opposed to other tools, Ketarin is not meant to keep your system up-to-date (like a package manager), but rather to maintain a compilation of all important setup packages which can then be burned to disc or put on a USB stick.

    -- How does it work?
    Basically, it monitors the content of web pages for changes and downloads files to a specified location. There is a tutorial explaining it all. Currently, you can either rely on a service based on FileHippo, or you can define your own rules, even using regular expressions (for advanced users). A similar application, for monitoring web pages, is "Webmon" and has sometimes served as guide.

    -- Note
    Supports regex expansion.

  • OneGet

    Free Windows Website

    OneGet is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed. Included in this CTP is a prototype implementation of a Small Chocolatey iconChocolatey -compatible package manager that can install existing Small Chocolatey iconChocolatey packages.

    With OneGet, you can

    Manage a list of software repositories in which packages can be searched, acquired, and installed
    Search and filter your repositories to find the packages you need
    Seamlessly install and uninstall packages from one or more repositories with a single PowerShell command
    We'll also be publishing standalone builds, once the source code is published.

  • Just Install

    just-install - The stupid package installer for Windows.

    Small Chocolatey iconChocolatey , Small Ninite iconNinite , Small Npackd iconNpackd are way too slow, bloated and difficult to extend. I needed a no-frills solution to install stuff on Windows machines, here it is.

    Download just-install.exe and double click it. Boom! just-install is now in your %PATH%. How easy is that?

    In a hurry? Here's a mnemonic link you can use to bootstrap a new machine, just type this in a browser then double-click the downloaded file. "Is (it) Good? Just Install!".
