Install tea by running our one-liner:
sh <(curl tea.xyz)
tea is a stand‐alone binary, see our docs for more installation methods.
THIS ISN’T A PACKAGE MANAGER. TEA IS UNIFIED PACKAGING INFRASTRUCTURE.
And through that packaging infrastructure, we have plans of leveraging blockchain to help remunerate devs for their contributions to OSS. You can learn more about our grand ambitions for web3 by checking out our white paper here.
We're currently on tea and our tea'm and community are working hard to make tea the most powerful package manager that the world has ever seen. From our revolutionary `magic` to powerful scripts that draw upon the entire open-source ecosystem, we’re fundamentally reimagining what a package manager can be. If you have suggestions or thoughts on how tea could be improved even further, we'd love for you to join the discussion!
Easily access the entire open source ecosystem with tea. Simply prefix your commands with "tea" and if the tool isn't installed, tea will install it for you. Add magic to your shell scripts and use developer environments to enhance your workflow. magic is optional; if you don’t enable it, then just prefix your commands with `tea`.
Simplify your development environment setup with tea by automatically fetching the specific versions of tools your project needs. With a range of specifications, tea provides a seamless solution to manage project dependencies. Debug changes, supplement your environment, and see the full environment with ease.
Scripting is so powerful, but has been left in the dark ages because there’s no easy way to install the packages you need. tea can transform your scripts by leveraging the entire open source ecosystem.
Getting started with tea!
tea is a standalone binary for all platforms. You can curl it by itself or, if you want magic, use our installer. We provide a docker image and GitHub action for easier CI/CD.
$ sh <(curl https://tea.xyz)
This will confirm before setting up ~/.tea and adding to your ~/.shellrc. Our one-liner even abstracts installing tea itself:
$ sh <(curl tea.xyz) bun run start
This way, you don't need to start with "how to install tea" in your tutorials and blog posts. The installer also updates tea. If you hate installers, use brew:
$ brew install teaxyz/pkgs/tea-cli
Don't just take our word for it; everybody's liking the new brew
When I ran my script (yarnpkg.com), it was an amazing moment––I realized I have not setup deno yet but tea magic just did it for me. It was a 'wow' moment... just 'wow'.
It is hard to think of a more perfect use for blockchain technology than coordinating package releases for opensource software. What @teaxyz_ is embarking on will improve security, maintenance, and reliability, while providing much-needed incentive for independent developers. 🙌🏼
You guys are really onto something with magics – it's so awesome. I've been using it all day and I am hooked.
Ready to start building?
All you need is tea.
tea’s +pkg syntax embodies our core belief that good tools should just get out of the way so that you can keep making the internet a better place. Access the entire open source ecosystem with one command, compose and combine everything, and enjoy an all-around more delightful dev experience.
OSS wouldn't work without talented contributors like you.
We at tea would like to give a big shout out to all the open-source developers out there. Your contributions and dedication to making the world a better place through technology is truly admirable. Thanks to your hard work and generosity, projects like tea can continue to improve and evolve. If you are interested in joining our team of code crusaders, we welcome you with open arms. Head on over to the tea repository on Github and start contributing today! Let's continue to make a positive impact on the world of technology together.
A mission to fix open-source development
tea is one of the first legitimate use cases for blockchain technology. Just as the US dollar was once backed by gold, we're building an economy that's backed by code.
We want to fix one of tech’s biggest problems: hardworking developers not getting compensated for their contributions to the building blocks of the internet. By leveraging blockchain technology we can keep track of who creates & maintains what, remunerate them for their efforts with tea tokens, and keep FAANG corporations from building empires atop unpaid labor. Feel like diving deeper? You can learn more by reading our white paper.
But videos are better than words… listen to our CEO, Max (creator of Homebrew), talk about tea's grand mission @ Web Summit 2022.
If this talk gets you as excited about what tea's doing as it did us, then you should definitely head over to our GitHub repo and install tea (if you haven't already). If you have… well, good on ya… have a cookie.
