Version manager for multiple programming languages


asdf is a CLI tool that can manage multiple language runtime versions on a per-project basis. It is like gvm, nvm, rbenv & pyenv (and more) all in one! Simply install your language's plugin!

Ballad of asdf

   Once upon a time there was a programming language
   There were many versions of it
   So people wrote a version manager for it
   To switch between versions for projects
   Different, old, new.
   Then there came more programming languages
   So there came more version managers
   And many commands for them
   I installed a lot of them
   I learnt a lot of commands
   Then I said, just one more version manager
   Which I will write instead
   So, there came another version manager
   asdf version manager -
   A version manager so extendable
   for which anyone can create a plugin
   To support their favourite language
   No more installing more version managers
   Or learning more commands
