I was wondering if there's anything in the LaTeX world that's similar to npm for JS and pipenv for Python. I'm setting up Continous Integration on some of my projects and it seems like overkill to:
sudo apt-get install texlive-full

Tectonic sounds like the closest thing youre searching. It works by downloading the required packages on its own (rather than you provide them, so not exactly like a package manager).
I use a dockerized version of it in my travis build for github (its also lightweight, about ~75MB initial download).
