New Ada Port:

ALIRE: Ada LIbrary REpository

A catalog of ready-to-use Ada/SPARK libraries plus a command-line tool (alr) to
obtain, build, and incorporate them into your own projects. It aims to fulfill
a similar role to Rust’s cargo or OCaml’s opam.
Design principles

alr is tailored to userspace, in a similar way to Python’s virtualenv. A
project or workspace will contain all its dependencies.

Some projects require binary packages from the distribution (Debian/Ubuntu’s
apt, msys2’s pacman on Windows). In this case the user will be asked to
authorize an installation through the distribution package manager.

Properties and dependencies of projects are managed through a TOML file. This
file exists locally for working copies of projects, and the Alire community
index stores the files corresponding to its projects.

The complete build environment is automatically set up by Alire, thus freeing
the user from concerns about installation paths. The user simply adds
dependencies to the alire.toml manifest, either from the command-line (alr
with) or a text editor, Alire handles the rest.
