Odd that one would come up in the rotation today, but I’m comfortable with that. If you remember kkm or wajig, you might appreciate what one hopes to accomplish — solidify the package management task in Debian to a single command.😯
I don’t have a screenshot for you, because I suspect a successful screenshot of one would show … dpkg or aptitude or apt-get or apt-cache or what have you, doing what it usually does. Terrifically uninteresting.
one defaults to installing a package, meaning just
one rsync should pull down rsync and install it. Simple enough.
After that, the default commands become one- or two- (or sometimes three-) letter mnemonics for whatever procedure you’re trying to accomplish. Ergo, s for search, i for details (or info), o for ownership, and so on.
Personally I have no compunction about using a tool like one, or wajig or kkm, to be clear. I occasionally find myself frustrated by having five or six separate tools available on a Debian system, when there is just pacman on my other computers.
I leave it to you to decide if something like one (or kkm or wajig, of course) is a good thing or a bad thing for the overall Debian structure. I am content to rely on Debian as a solid foundation distro, and permit each user the leeway to use unifying tools as they see fit.
And in case you’re keeping count, there are almost as many unification efforts now as there are tools to unify on a Debian system. How’s that for irony?😆
