Who’s using bors?

This month’s featured user is Pkg.jl, the default package manager for the Julia, a numerics-focused programming language.

  • Julia is a multi-paradigm language with a REPL and and optimizing compiler, designed to allow entire systems to be written in one language (unlike, for example, NumPy, which uses Python and C).
  • Pkg.jl — like Bundler, Cargo, Mix, or NuGet — is a system for automatically installing libraries to run applications, and allows multiple applications to have access to different sets of libraries by giving them separate “environments”.
  • Pkg.jl supports “federated” package repositories, meaning that one project can depend on libraries from multiple sources.
