Delphinus: Opensource Packagemanager for XE and up

Recommended Posts

Some might already know Delphinus. But for those who don't i thought i make a little introduction post, to have a thread for discussion, as I never made one for the international Delphi-Praxis. Questions are always welcome.


Delphinus is an opensource Packagemanager for Delphi, which I started in 2015. It has support for Delphi XE and newer.


In addition to an IDE integration for package-management, Delphinus comes with a commandline, too. This has the benefit of having a single interface for managing multiple IDEs or run setup-scripts automatically.


Currently, packages are provided through Github by preparing a repo to appear in a special Github-Query Delphinus uses to detect packages (See wiki link below).

For optimal use, you should add a OAuth-Token to the Delphinus-Config(See wiki link below). Otherwhise you'll hit rate-limits.

Offline installation from a folder is provided through the IDE-UI(Folder Symbol). Adding support for creating local folder based repositories for mirroing is planned.

Delphinus packages have support for:

  • Copying (source) files
  • Compiling and (if Designtime) installing BPLs
  • Compiling and installing IDE-Experts
  • setting up Search/Browsing path
  • Dependencies to other Delphinus-Packages

Optionally, BPLs and Experts may be included as precompiled binary, if your project is closed source.
Packages are installed per IDE. I'm working on per project installations.
