Ssake is super easy to use and produces accurate results.
It is lightweight and has no dependencies, I highly recommend it. Because it uses coverage info, assemblies are stratified which makes it also suitable for transcriptome and meta genome assemblies. It is not as greedy as most people report, the correct path is chosen no based on longest overlap, but coverage and reads having a matching pairing partner already assembled
