A cli frontend to emerge, written in Rust.
Because. I can.
Rust and Cargo are required. It is recommended to install them via rustup.
cargo install --git https://github.com/Phate6660/pkg.git
cargo install pkg-gentoo
Note: This is currently outdated, will update soon.
sudo emerge --sync.
sudo emerge -atv pkg-gentoo
Note: Even though the package is named
pkg-gentoo, the binary is still
$ pkg -h
pkg 0.0.9 Phate6660 <https://github.com/Phate6660> A cli frontend for emerge, plus some extra features. Why? Because I can. Note: Package operations require root.

There's really nothing concrete. I'm just adding and editing features as I see fit right now.
If anyone actually wants to use this and would like to see features added, feel free to open an issue.
