EasyBuild is a software installation framework in Python that allows you to install software in a structured and robust way. This package contains a collection of easyconfigs, i.e. simple text files written in Python syntax that specify the build parameters for software packages (version, compiler toolchain, dependency versions, etc.)
Build status - master branch (Python 2.4, Python 2.6, Python 2.7)

EasyBuild: building software with ease
The easybuild-easyconfigs package provides a collection of well-tested example easyconfig files for EasyBuild (http://hpcugent.github.com/easybuild), a software build and installation framework written in Python that allows you to install software in a structured, repeatable and robust way.
Easyconfig files are used to specify which software to build, which version of the software (and its dependencies), which build parameters to use (e.g., which compiler toolchain to use), etc.
The code of the easybuild-easyconfigs package is hosted on GitHub, along with an issue tracker for bug reports and feature requests, see http://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild-easyconfigs.
The EasyBuild documentation is available on the GitHub wiki of the easybuild meta-package, see http://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild/wiki/Home.
