auto-apt is useful to people who install things from source. Have your ever had frustration with ./configure ? because of gazillion number of dependencies which weren't already installed. Well auto-apt solves this problem by installing packages on the spot when your are doing ./configure to check perquisites.

And execute following commands to populate its database and make it usable.

sudo auto-apt update && sudo auto-apt updatedb && sudo auto-apt update-local

Usage

./configure

auto-apt run ./configure
