Package Database View outputs an HTML view of a RPM or dpkg database. Its modular design allows easy addition of others package management database and export format (as xml). it does not require special privileges to access to the output (but access can be restricted by using chmod/chown or .htaccess. It does not require any large libraries, a Web serv, or an X server. The output is generated by a cronjob, so access to the output is as fast as your computer is able to read or serve text files.
