I really don't want a node_modules folder...
good news, yarn allows for a custom folder name:

Code: Select all

"scripts": {
        "newinstall": "yarn install --modules-folder ./lib"
    }

Next?

Yarn :O
Never used it, is it easy and fast?

That only seems like a short term solution.
For long term solutions we need our own package manager.

So nnnik, I can manually make an account for you on aspdm.ahkscript.org if you want to test it out :+1:

I don't see the point in re-inventing the package manager wheel. I also highly doubt the likelihood of matching the quality and feature set of npm. That being said whatever works, I'm in favor of.

Ultra Fast. It is faster than plain npm.

@joedf
yeah that would be good

@Chunjee
I never said that we cannot base our package manager on anything that currently exists.
Here is a list of things yarn won't be able to do:
  • install a package globally
  • dealing with forks and several AHK versions
  • find packages that are relevant for automating specific programs/websites and watching if these automation codes are still relevant
  • installing AHK specific development tools
  • managing preprocessors

Hmm that sounds cool. Would love to see this with a web interface.

If it isn't a AHK authored solution I'm not using it :-) not going install a node app (yuck) or chocolatey (double yuck) for what is essentially a simple "download and copy to folder" script. It is not the managing script but how to organise/setup the library portal what matters - the rest is fairly trivial.

yes I also find that node and chocolatey lack the elegance of apt-get which I am perfectly fine with. pip is okay but I think the command is py-3 -m pip install <version 3 compatible python package> is annoying with version management between v2 and v3. (Since pip can refer to a v2 or v3 python module). Thank god v2.7 will be obsolete soon.

If you only have one python version installed you can run the pip command directly though. Pip also seems to be the closest relative when it comes to the include structure.

GitHub Package Registry, a package management service that makes it easy to publish public or private packages next to your source code.

GitHub Package Registry is fully integrated with GitHub, so you can use the same search, browsing, and management tools to find and publish packages as you do for your repositories. You can also use the same user and team permissions to manage code and packages together. GitHub Package Registry provides fast, reliable downloads backed by GitHub’s global CDN. And it supports familiar package management tools: JavaScript (npm), Java (Maven), Ruby (RubyGems), .NET (NuGet), and Docker images, with more to come.

You can try GitHub Package Registry today in limited beta. It will always be free to use for open source—more pricing details will be announced soon.

LOL - hence the :?:
I don't know what the GitHub Package Registry entails but perhaps there is a way to use it to combine AutoHotkey (installer) with some community approved (ahkscript at GH) packages.

:thumbup:

For what it's worth I think Tanks suggestion is going to be the easiest and simplest to execute:

Code: Select all

[
 {
   "Author": "Author",
   "Thread URL": "Thread URL",
   "GitHub Zip": " GitHub Zip"
 },
 {
   "Author": "Author",
   "Thread URL": "Thread URL",
   "GitHub Zip": " GitHub Zip"
 }
]
The schema could be extended at a later date. E.G. tags could be handy

I dont think we need to reinvent the wheel. I dunno... Let me know what you think... I want to integrate login from autohotkey.com to http://aspdm.ahkscript.org/ (or later http://aspdm.autohotkey.com/) but the web side stuff still needs improvement and I am not sure of security for now...

ASPDM works fine already https://github.com/ahkscript/ASPDM
with a specifications, etc. https://github.com/ahkscript/ASPDM/blob/master/Specifications/Database.md
https://github.com/ahkscript/ASPDM/blob/master/Local-Client/Test_Packages/isbinfile/package.json

I have a barebones Github "lister" I posted a while ago...

You collected a lot of code in a repository in aspdm and then offered a static download to that.
That's a nice collection of scripts. It is completely unrelated to what a package manager is though.

In all fairness this thread isn’t about a package manager. It’s about a standard library. I.E. A library that comes with AHK.

Oh boy, major confusion here my bad... :p
@nnnik You mean the old demo ahklibr script? aspdm follows the "npm" style, but uses a gui instead, also the website is underdeveloped...
@sancarn So we should choose what should be in a stdlib then maybe search for the best candidate scripts for each "section", eg. best suited string lib, math lib, io lib, etc?

To be fair, on reflection, my comment was also in regards of a package manager. A package manager would be an ideal work around but it looks like the thread author was talking about a standard compiled set of existing scripts which work well as a package.

Unfortunately though I think most packages don’t follow a particular coding style, so it’d probably require a lot of work to rewrite code to fit a single style. E.G you don’t want a CSV package which uses old style pseudo arrays to be used in the same framework as the JSON package which uses OOP... So it may not be as simple as shoving many packages together... it’d really needs proper thought...

I.E. I believe the author was looking for a framework for AHK.

Something similar to this:

Code: Select all

A_
|- COM
|  |- RegisterActiveObject
|  |- GetActiveObjects
|- NET
|  |- Socket
|  |  |- ...
|  |- HTTP
|  |  |- ...
Is what I imagine the thread author had in mind.
