Changed name from vpm to vbm

vbm - An XBPS package management helper for vb aka Void GNU/Linux

version 1.0

vbm is a simple to use, daily-driver enhancement to the awesome XBPS (X Binary Package System), initially designed as a helper tool for use with VoidLinux. Feel free to think "Void Package Management" or something if it helps you remember its name, but please note that it's NOT a "package manager" in the nitpickers understanding of the word - especially vbm shouldn't be confused with XBPS - vbm is just an addon helper tool for XBPS to make your life easier. That's it.

Motivation to write vpm

I initially found XBPS to have a steep learning-curve, so I wanted to ease the life of new VoidLinux users, and XBPS users in general. Please don't feel afraid to look up the corresponding XBPS commands it translates to, or use vpm --show-translations so you even see the translations already when using vpm help. It has been said that vpm will ease the transition from Debian's APT, and some other user-friendly repository/package-managers.

Dependencies

vbm requires BASH, the Bourne Again SHell, which should be installed by default on a new VoidLinux system. You also will need git and xcheckrestart both provided by xtools package to obtain a clone of the vbm repository. (see "Installation" section, below).

Or you can just grab vbm and paste it anywhere in your system.

Installation

(optional - needed for xcheckrestart functions)

Install xtools via xbps-install

xbps-install -S xtools    

1. Clone vbm repository

git clone https://codeberg.org/oSoWoSo/vbm.git

3. Enter the cloned repo and run:

sudo make install

3a. Remove vbm

If you want to remove vbm, just use make to remove it. Make sure you are in the cloned directory first, then run:

sudo make uninstall

or simply

vbm remove vbm :)

ZOMG! PONIES!!111

Rainbows and unicorns, indeed. If you like colorized output, please see the --color=true option, too! All vbm options try to have human readable and easy to remember syntax, no --long-option-with-multiple-complex-words, no need to even prefix arguments with --, vbm just tries to do its best it can to understand the user (there are some command-line-switches, though, see vbm help).

Also vbm will ask for password if needed.
