Creates single-file installers for eggified distributions

Project Description

EggFreezer creates single-file installers for an EGG distribution, along with all dependencies, which can be used without network access.

The result is a .py script which bootstraps a virtualenv and installs the requirements that have been “frozen”.

Multi-platform “universal” installers can be created by adding extra platform identifiers with the –platform command-line option. Note that binary eggs are not too portable, see for more details.

This software is licensed under the terms of the MIT license. Questions, comments or whatever can be directed at the distutils-sig mailing list.
