Use simple python scripts as zc.buildout extensions

Project Description

buildout.extensionscripts is a convenient way to shoot yourself in the foot and provides more than enough rope to hang yourself.

With that out of the way, we can look what it can be used for.

To use buildout.extensionscripts, you add it as an extension in a buildout like this:

extensions = buildout.extensionscripts

After that you can add one or more lines like the following to the buildout section:

extension-scripts =

When you do that, you got an easy way to write a buildout extensions without the need of an egg. The callable_name in will be called with one argument which is the dictionary like buildout config.

Now have fun shooting and or hanging yourself by changing that.
