I use straight.el <https://github.com/raxod502/straight.el> which has 
some interesting features for managing packages such as
Configuration reproducibility 
so it easy to keep the package to a certain version.

You can also download package from a repository, with just the git URL, 
similar to quelpa.
Doom Emacs has an interesting early-init.el 
file, with some nice tweaks.
