There's no point in having that if Lexikos has no intention of shipping AHK with a stdlib. A package manager fills that purpose to download and "install" whatever packages you want. I don't think we will ever get to the point of versioning packages like npm does. We just need a repository of code with an application that can download them to the specified directory.

If the download or update of the "standard Lib" can be easily automated and "the community" wants it included with the installer, that is fine with me. I just want no part in maintaining it.
FWIW, something like this is what I expect the thread owner imagined(Note: Haven't written AHK in a while so some syntax may be wrong :lol: )

Registered for that github package manager beta. I will report back if accepted. I have to imagine it is very similar to npm which I've been cruising along with and working very well so long as you don't try to define the same function twice. So just stay completely flat I guess and #Include everything at the global scope.

Where I ended up:

I posted a video demonstrating the concept here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtYKiPH07ZQ
You may view an example program that pulls its dependencies (with yarn) here: https://github.com/Chunjee/SA-omdbcloner
One such lib can be found here: https://github.com/Chunjee/string-similarity.ahk
I've written a little bit about how some ahk changes would assist in this matter (because things start breaking when a dependency has a dependency, etc): https://autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=57833
