VI Package Manager, or VIPM, is a programming application that functions as a package management tool. It is designed to help users organize, maintain, and configure packages within the LabVIEW environment, as well as discover, create, and share their LabVIEW add-ons. With this tool, users will find it easy to obtain and configure their libraries, as well as their development tools. It also allows users to access shared repositories they have created using the program’s Enterprise Edition. The manager also provides users with the ability to download different kinds of third-party development tools and libraries for programming use by connecting to the VI Package Network or the LabVIEW Tools Network.
One of the key features of this application is its support for various LabVIEW add-ons. Through the use of these add-ons, programmers will be more productive as they will be able to build reusable code tools and libraries. The package manager lets users manage their add-ons in multiple projects and across different versions of the LabVIEW program. The reusable code libraries users create can be easily shared with project collaborators or with the other members of the user’s development team using a private or public server. Users can also customize their own tools for managing code libraries through the use of VI-based APIs.
