I’ve released yet another one of my Mostly Useless™ projects, Fetch, which let’s you grab a couple of web development resources straight from the command line. Package managers seem to be something that pops up every once in a while. Among them there’s homebrew, Bower, Yeoman and of course the good old apt-get, which I use from time to time. They’re lovely tools but as I’m nothing more than a hobbyist they’re a bit overkill for me, so I took a run at creating something a lot more simpler. I wouldn’t really call it a package manager but more of a component catcher though. I’m thinking of implementing JSON into it instead of using YAML, but we’ll see how that goes. One thing I really need to do is to step up my game and actually start to learn more. I feel that I’ve been staying in the same spot knowledge-wise for quite some time now and it’s time to start to progress again. But I digress.

One a side note, I finally figured out why I couldn’t get my Ruby projects to run under Crunchbang Linux. I’d literally forgotten the “whole shebang”, ie: #!/usr/bin/env ruby, at the start. Head, prepare to meet desk.
