Camicri Cube Server is an awesome portable package manager, which is created by Jake Capangpangan to manage Linux packages offline/online that means it can facilitate your Linux computer which isn't connected to Internet. Camicri Server is written in Vala language, an open source programming language managed by Gnome community. Last year we did share CamicriCube which has GUI and written by same developer in C# and .Net languages. Unlike CamicriCube, the Camicri Cube Server do not have any GUI and it uses Javascript, HTML, and CSS to perform its operation in any web browser, as a front-end UI.

Another interesting thing about Camicri Cube Server is that it is available for Linux and MS Windows, it doesn't require any kind of dependencies to run on both platforms, which means if your Linux computer doesn't have the Internet connection or for some reason you can't connect your Linux computer to the Internet then simply you can use Windows version to download packages (it even could be your network drivers for Linux or so) and install downloaded packages on your offline Linux computer.

How it works?
