Why omni?

Have you ever fumbled through running tests on your nth project, or found yourself wrestling with incompatible dependencies while setting up your development environment? Perhaps you’re using a collection of disparate tools that easily get out of date, and it’s an ordeal to keep your toolset in a healthy state? It is even more challenging to do that in a growing organization, with every individual having their own way to do things.

Omni addresses these pain points by simplifying dependency definitions, enabling single-command repository setups, and facilitating command discoverability across cloned repositories. It standardizes command access, automates global command updates, and streamlines onboarding with a single repository serving as a centralized entry point.
