Sileo Package Manager
Sileo is a Cydia alternative for iOS 11 and iOS 12 and the latest Sileo version supports iOS 13. You may think why do we need Sileo when there is Cydia. Well, the answer is Sileo will replace Cydia soon. And it is the default package manager for Chimera Jailbreak which is faster than the old package manager Cydia. What does that mean? When you jailbreak using Chimera Jailbreak, Sileo will be installed automatically in the same way that Cydia is installed in other jailbreak tools.

Actually why Sileo has been introduced?
Cydia is more than 15 years old and Saurik is the key star. But from some time, Saurik is being silent and new jailbreak developers don't have time to wait till Saurik update Cydia to the latest version. As a result of that, they have created their own version of Cydia naming Sileo. Sileo is much faster than Cydia and all credits goes to Electra Jailbreak Team plus more for creating this awesome bundle.
Sileo will be compatible for iOS 11 onwards but not for the versions below iOS 11. For those versions which are below iOS 11 can use Cydia without no question. Further digging, Sileo will not be compatible for 32-bit devices.
But it is said that Sileo will work with previous Cydia repositories and packages and that is a vital implementation detail for those jailbreaking.
