Hey everyone !!! hope you're doing good

I'm wondering to generate script who can automatically install all the current packages that i'd manually installed after setting up debian freshly on i don't need to manually install packages in case i need to setup debian again.

make a list and create a simple bash script that will apt-get -y (i think the -y argument works for apt) long list of packages you want to install. better yet use a table that will allow apt to grab one package at a time and prompt what to do if a package no longer exists or is broken.
