There is a new application available for Sparkers: Nala

What is Nala?

Nala is a front-end for libapt-pkg. Specifically we interface using the python-apt api. Especially for newer users it can be hard to understand what apt is trying to do when installing or upgrading. We aim to solve this by not showing some redundant messages, formatting the packages better, and using color to show specifically what will happen with a package during install, removal, or an upgrade.

Installation (Sparky 6):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nala-legacy

Installation (Sparky 7):

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nala
