Tool to download and build python based upon pyenv.
BuildPython is a python library to download and build a specified version of python into a specified directory.
The code is basically derived from pyenv but provides a bit of a nicer wrapper.
It was built for use with http://hitchtest.com/ so that you can test the same code with multiple versions of python.
$ pip install python-build
Use in python:
>>> import python_build >>> python_build.python_build("2.7.3", "/home/user/projectdirectory/py273")
Use outside of python:
$ python-build 2.7.3 /home/user/projectdirectory/py273
$ python-build --help
