Pacstall: AUR for Ubuntu
Pacstall is a package manager inspired on AUR (Arch User Repository) for Ubuntu, so you can install the latest software alongside the stable base of Ubuntu.
Pacstall takes in files known as pacscripts (similar to AUR PKGBUILD’s) that contain the necessary contents to build packages, and builds them into executables on your system. Available packages can be found on https://github.com/pacstall/pacstall-programs/tree/master/packages.
