eGenix Web Installer Test Package

## eGenix Web Installer Test Package

This is a test package for the eGenix Web Installer that comes with the latest mxSetup module, the distutils/setuptools add-on we have been using to distribute our packages since 2004. mxSetup.py is included in in this package.

## Automatic Binary Installation

The test package will install mxDateTime using a source package which dynamically downloads and runs a precompiled binary package for the installation platform. mxDateTime uses a Python C extension, so normally requires a working compiler environment for the installation.

The test package also supports fallback to the source package and compilation using a compiler, in case no suitable binary package can be found.

Note that the test package only includes the bare minimum to run the web installer and provide meta-data to installers such as easy_install, zc.buildout and pip. It does not include any binaries or the source code of the package it is meant to install.

## Compatibility

The test package should be compatible with:

• Python 2.5 - 2.7

• easy_install, pip and zc.buildout

• manual “python setup.py install”

• Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD

More documentation will follow as we make progress with the web installer.
