Create files for a number of modules and scripts quickly

Project description

Easily create files for easy_install / setuptools

I’m too lazy to author files for installation of simple python modules and scripts, and setuptools/easy_install is very handy for installing scripts “properly” on both win32 and unix. Hence this script for creating a functional quickly. It’s perfectly usable for creating source and binary distributions as well.

Quick guide:

  • Go to a directory with lots of python modules (no packages!).

  • If the directory name is /home/foo/bar, ‘bar’ will be used as the name of the distribution.

  • If a python module has ‘def main’ in it, it’s considered executable

  • Run easier_install

  • Review the resulting and run it, as instructed.
