EdTittel, to windowsinsiders

nteresting goings on with #Winget updating #PowerToys, after the latter team releases two versions in quick succession. I'm guessing this will be an easy fix, but something's puzzling right now. #WindowsInsiders #MVP https://www.edtittel.com/blog/interesting-v0-80-x-powertoys-puzzle.html

Komac, the Kotlin program for creating Winget packages, has now been rewritten in Rust (github.com)

In other news, URLs are now delimited by a space rather than a comma when updating manifests. Komac uses a very small amount amount of memory and has been heavily optimised to minimise memory usage (especially heap allocations). Updating Android Studio (a 1GB+ binary) consistently took just ~3.5mb memory. Komac now has a...

A graphical user interface to manage packages from the most common package managers for windows, such as Winget, Scoop, Chocolatey, Pip, Npm and .NET Tool.

In a DevHome upgrade fails because of an SDK issue. Things get more mysterious but the rides to the rescue. https://www.edtittel.com/blog/devhome-update-hiccup-deciphered.html#Windows11

fiddling around w as a development environment. not feeling very gracious about the state of package management

boneskull,

@totoroot I don’t know anything about nix but it sounds complicated. that’s kind of the opposite of what I want. what’s great is lol

I'm having fun using winget on Windows. Still inferior to pretty much any Linux package manager, but it's nice Windows finally has one.

Pros:

  • Windows finally has a package manager

Cons:

  • Picked up all of the weaknesses of apt, none of its strengths
  • You have to type the entire package id to install software, meaning you can't just guess by typing in "firefox"
  • Clunky and slow

Hmm. (a Windows package manager) handles self-update poorly. If you run it inside a PowerShell Core session, updating PowerShell Core will fail. If you update Chocolatey itself, updating that will partially succeed with a warning. You’d think it would be smart enough to relaunch itself from a different path?

Is better at this?

rocks. I even wrote an article about it as it helps with Attack Surface Management, endpoint staging and software discovery - at home, in small businesses and in enterprises.
