Distutils extensions for developing Python libraries and applications.

Project description

The buildutils package contains extensions to Python’s standard distribution utilities (distutils) that are often useful during the development of Python projects. buildutils was created to scratch an itch: removing make from the Python development process and partially to gain a better understanding of how distutils works.

The following extension commands are included:

announce
send a release announcement to mailing lists like python-announce-list@python.org
checksum
generate MD5 and SHA-1 checksum files for distributables.
etags
generate an TAGS file over all packages and module (for use in Emacs).
flakes
find lint using the pyflakes utility.
info
dumps information about the project.
publish
push distributables and documentation up to a project site using ssh/scp/sftp.
pudge
build Python documentation from restructured text documents and Python doc strings.
pytest
run py.test unit tests.
stats
dump statistics on the number of lines, files, modules, packages, etc.
use
bring in a working version of a dependency (uses setuptools egg stuff).
