Kali Metapackage CLI
Use this script if you want access to Kali Metapackage on your current Linux distribution but do not want to install the entire Kali distribution. Debian is being used at the moment.
A few problems exist with Ubuntu. Be careful when using this script.
What is a meta package?
Metapackages, which are created as a list of dependencies on other packages, are used to install numerous packages all at once.
These are used by Kali Linux in a number of ways, such as letting users choose how many packages from the entire Kali list they want to install. excerpt from kali.org
Install and run
To install Kalipak on Linux, run any of the one-liners below.
- Using git:
git clone https://github.com/neuralpain/kalipak /tmp/kalipak && cp -f /tmp/kalipak/kalipak /bin && chmod +x /bin/kalipak
- Using wget:
- Install in the /bin directory
wget -O kalipak https://gg.gg/kalipak && chmod +x ./kalipak && sudo mv -f ./kalipak /bin
- Or download and run
wget -O kalipak https://gg.gg/kalipak && chmod +x ./kalipak && ./kalipak –init
- Or for a portable installer, Download and run the kalipak-install script (wget is required).
After installing kalipak, run kalipak –init to prepare your system for working with Kali metapackages; then use the menu to select what you need. –init will be ignored on Kali Linux regardless, so just run kalipak on Kali.

use with KALIPAK by installing required packages

–purge Remove sources added by KALIPAK.
