PBI Manager Now Available in FreeBSD Ports

Yesterday Kris committed PBI Manager to the FreeBSD ports collection (/ports-mgmt/pbi-manager). This means that you don’t have to wait for PC-BSD 9.0 to be released to try out the new command line suite of PBI tools.

You can find some documentation on the various tools in this section of the PC-BSD 9.0 Handbook. Users are welcome to add to this section to help other users get the most out of PBI Manager.

NOTE: PBI files created for PC-BSD 7.x/8.x (i.e. those available from pbidir​.com) will NOT work with PBI Manager as the PBI format has changed for 9.0. You can find the locations of 9 PBIs here.

    Nice, thanks!

    Btw, after reading wiki I have got a feeling that PBI command line tools could use some care, e.g.: inconsistent usage of del/delete vs rem/remove, “rem” especially not very intuitive .. remote? (and i can’t forget REM from Basic:-)), if there is “del” command a tool should accept “delete” too, unnecessary / difficult abbreviations like –pathlnk (why not just pathlink, reminds me of Unix creat and such ;-)), etc. I know, just nitpicking, but those things add to the whole experience, you know. :-)
