It is an easy and fast tool to install your packages with just one command.

What means “Trouxa”?

In portuguese, Trouxa means something like a “bundle of clothes”, but it is also a pejorative term like mug, gink, muggle. Thinking in the first meaning, why not let this bundle carry Packages too? (It does not make sense, I know lol)

Why use it?

With trouxa, you can install many packages just noting it in a file, packages.txt, and selecting your package manager.

If you are using the a Arch based distro like me, you just need create a file with your needs, and run a command.

and many others packages....

and run it on the same directory as the packages.txt

trouxa pacman -p packages.txt

If the file is with the name packages.txt, you could not specify it because this is the default value of -p

trouxa pacman
