Zebra Package Manager
Zebra is another Package Manager for jailbroken iOS devices. It is built to support iOS 9 up to iOS 13 and for iPhones and iPads.
Zebra is fully open-source and has been forged with speed. So this has become more efficient. Moreover, Zebra allows you to customize their app with dark mode and custom app management.
