Pacstall - The AUR for Ubuntu

Why another package manager?

If you've ever used the AUR, you know that every package known to man is there. But why is this Arch specific? That's why I made Pacstall. An AUR-like alternative, for Ubuntu!

How does it work then?

Pacstall takes in files known as pacscripts (similar to PKGBUILD's) that contain the necessary contents to build packages, and builds them into executables on your system.

Why is this any different than any other package manager?

Pacstall uses the stable base of Ubuntu but allows you to use bleeding edge software with little to no compromises, so you don't have to worry about security patches or new features.
