Wajig is a simplified wrapper to Debian's package management system dpkg/APT. Wajig provides the functionality of apt-get, dpkg, dpkg-deb, apt-cache and other tools. These tools launch as a subprocess. Wajig also provides extra functionality beyond that of the stock apt and dpkg tools. For example, the command wajig sizes provides a listing of all installed packages and the amount of disk space they require, from smallest to largest.
Wajig provides a consistent and intuitive interface to all packaging commands, unlike the traditional apt or dpkg package managers. Wajig serves as a wrapper for the underlying apt/dpkg commands.
wajig also provides a package install and removal log. This log provides an audit trail that help an administrator with diagnostics package diagnostics.
Gnome-jig (gjig) provides a GNOME interface as part of the wajig package. While running gjig, hovering the mouse over the buttons provides a balloon with a clear description of the function that the button provides.
