Okay, so deno is a engine to run js not the package manager. Got it! I thought deno was doing everything including package managing.

There's no separate package manager with deno because it automatically pulls dependencies from urls in your code. It's a different approach, there's no need for a package.json and therefore no need for a package manager.

Yeah, time saving and helpful, right?
Oro should include this caching method.

Time saving. Not sure. You still have to find the correct URL just like searching for the correct package on npm

As far as I know, we only need to type
htrps://deno.land/packagename.ts

And that's it.

Only for packages in the "standard library" for Deno. Everything else are git URLs.
