Distutils extensions for developing Python libraries and applications.
buildutils provides several new commands for your package setup.py file to help make development easier. It integrates with distutils using --command-packages, or automatically will add commands to all your setuptools projects.
add a custom distutils command to a package/setup.cfg file
send a release announcement to mailing lists like firstname.lastname@example.org
create a bundle of a package plus all its dependencies
generate MD5 and SHA-1 checksum files for distributables.
generate an TAGS file over all packages and module (for use in Emacs).
find lint using the pyflakes utility.
dumps information about the project.
push distributables and documentation up to a project site using ssh/scp/sftp.
build Python documentation from restructured text documents and Python doc strings, using Pudge <http://pudge.lesscode.org>.
run py.test unit tests.
dump statistics on the number of lines, files, modules, packages, etc.
make a Subversion tag for a versioned release
bring in a working version of a dependency (uses setuptools egg stuff).
Buildutils is available in a Mercurial repository.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
