ZC Buildout recipe for building standalone Mac OS X application bundles.

Project Description

The rod.recipe.py2app helps to create standalone Mac OS X application bundles using py2app and PyObjC. It aims to provide handling eggs within a zc.buildout environment.

To be honest, this is a recipe for scrambled eggs. The current py2app version lacks of supporting python eggs, especially namespace packages. This recipe reconstructs a directory tree from the contents of the given eggs.
