PkgUtils : Some tools to work with Package


Probably you have seen that I was not so much active on Community for some weeks…because I was so much busy in developing ‘PkgUtils’ and was unable to use Community but now extension is complete and ready to be used.
PkgUtils is basically related to Package and Package Manager and that is why it is similar to Package Utilities component already available in Kodular.
But it has a few more methods in comparison to native component :wink:

Great work, clicked on mini url 2 times, and downloaded twice, :heart_eyes:


This is the best way of presenting an extension, by explaining in detail what each block does and providing examples. Some of us are old people, and we are a little slow you know? :grin: Thanks!
