Thanks for this great feedback!

Indeed, Pyrustic is designed in the "all or nothing" fashion because I wanted to make things easier for new Python enthusiasts [1][2] and also it's fun to build things from scratch. Then, after my first Show HN, I started to embrace standards: Pyrustic was available exclusively through Github Releases, I then put it on PyPI. Then I moved further away from the standards to offer a packaging/distribution alternative [3] by taking advantage of Github Releases assets feature and also of the ZIP archive format.

I had planned to implement "requirements.txt" support in Hubstore. Thanks to your feedback I think I can do better. It was fun building solutions from scratch but I'm writing code for humans, I want adoption, so I'm going to do my best to embrace standards even more.

Thanks again for this feedback which I find relevant and useful, I'll be back soon with a version that integrates well with the Python ecosystem, and I'm already looking forward to reading the upcoming HN feedback.
