Just wanted to ask whether there was a package manager which could be installed on android terminal like homebrew cask, macports (macOS). PS Just wanted to install small application like wget and curl.

    Try Termux's apt install, or see if those binaries are available in any BusyBox app from Play Store.

There are some projects to port Debian apt but they were unusably unstable last I tested.

2018 update

Termux is reliable and can install select packages (I use ssh/rsync), more packages are available in termux-ubuntu etc, but many won't work or require workarounds due to the unusual environment.

  • +1 for that. Good answer.
