Stacer: APT Repository Manager

The apt command is a powerful command-line tool, which works with Ubuntu’s Advanced Packaging Tool (APT) performing such functions as installing new software packages, upgrading existing software packages, updating the package list index, and even upgrading the entire Ubuntu system.

The APT package index is essentially a database of available packages from the repositories defined in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d.

This tab lets you edit the package repositories without needing to use an editor. You can also add and delete repositories.

Stacer APT Repository Manager


APT is package management software for Ubuntu/Debian distributions. Other distributions use different package management tools, so the usefulness of the APT Repository Manager depends on what distribution(s) is running on your systems.

This tab isn’t much of a time saver. On the rare occasions I need to edit the package index, I gravitate towards using a text editor, rather than using Stacer.
