Quick Tour of Pak
To install named packages:
pak install NAME...
Where NAME can be the name of a package published in the Pak catalog, NPM or bower catalog, a GitHub repository endpoint, a GitHub account/repository or a path to a local package directory. Here are some of the forms you can use to install packages.
pak install jquery pak install jquery pak install npm:jquery pak install bower:jquery pak install https://github.com/embedthis/jquery.git pak install firstname.lastname@example.org:embedthis/jquery pak install embedthis/jquery
