Santa: brings you your packages

Ever wished you could specify which Debian/Ubuntu packages your app needs in a format similar to bundler's Gemfile?

You can with santa.

$ gem install santa

$ cat <<EOF > Debfile
deb "ruby1.9.1-dev"
deb "nginx", repo: "ppa:nginx/stable"

$ santa
--> sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:nginx/stable
--> sudo apt-get update
--> sudo apt-get install -y ruby1.9.1-dev
--> sudo apt-get install -y nginx
