Command-line installer for Windows.
What we like
Similar to Homebrew on macOS, lets Windows users install apps from the command line. Bypasses permissions and GUI wizards. Manages all dependencies and any extra setup. Has community packages for games, fonts, Java, PHP, databases. Scriptable for automating machine bootstrapping. Easy to write your own packages.
What we don't like
Windows only (obviously). Requires PowerShell to install.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
