I made a Package manager!


I made a package manager. It can download a package. It depends on simple ini files in a repository instead of package.json or anything else. Its entire production zip is less than 5kbs of space including docs and other things. It is written in ruby and depends on curl and Inifile to download and read the package files , respectively. feedback and pull requests (for packages) welcome!
