Chestnut Package Manager
Chestnut Package Manager is a utility to handle executables and resource files in a transparent, platform independent and relocatable way. Its concept is similar to Apple bundles and Java archives. It is implemented in Python. The application consists of a Python library and three executables:

  • a runner, cnrun, which runs executables identified by the package name, the version and the entry point
  • a path resolver, cnpath, which returns the absolute path of a resource given the same identification as above
  • a lister, cnls, which provides a list of the packages available, and detailed information about their contents
