Portage dbapi vs Gentoolkit api

posted on April 12, 2011

Wrote  some code to read list of installed packages (CPV - category, package, version) using the Gentoolkit api, as well as the Portage dbapi. Here’s the results !

...
...
xfce-extra/xfce4-power-manager-1.0.10
xfce-extra/xfce4-sensors-plugin-1.0.0-r1
xfce-extra/xfce4-taskmanager-1.0.0
Gentoolkit 2.60817313194
Portage 0.0787289142609

Portage dbapi is way faster than Gentoolkit :)
