Project Description

Runs the in all specified directories, using custom interpreter, e.g. the one generated by zc.buildout.egg recipe. Its intended to be used to run any commands that require libraries (eggs) from buildout. Any additional command line arguments are passed to the Setup is always run in working directory where it resides.


  • develop - List of directories, where file reside. Typically ${buildout:develop} to list all developed apps.
  • use-interpreter - Name of python interpreter to use. Optional, when not specified, system interpreter is used.
  • command - Command line argument for the Optional.

Typical buildout.cfg snippet:

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
interpreter = python
eggs = ${buildout:eggs}

recipe = setup-recipe
use-interpreter = ${python:interpreter}
develop = ${buildout:develop}
command = test

Running ./bin/test will then run ./bin/python test for every developed project.

Adding arguments ./bin/test sdist register upload will then test, build and publish all apps to cheeseshop. Since you can omit implicit command, you can have generic script setup and call it with whatever arguments you wish.
