a utility library to help environment bootstrapping scripts

Project description

build status Bitdeli badge


It’s recommended to use Sprinter’s standalone installer:


cd /tmp/; rm sprinter; curl -s > /tmp/sprinter; bash /tmp/sprinter

Debian-Based (e.g. Ubuntu):

cd /tmp/; rm; wget -O; bash

You can also install sprinter using easy_install or pip (not recommended, it’s easier to update with the standalone):

(sudo) easy_install

(sudo) pip install

What is it?

A cross-platform environment bootstrapping framework!

Sprinter is a framework designed to making bootstrapping development environments easier. There are three main components to a usable sprinter environment:

  • This python egg, to fully utilize the framework

  • a sprinter.cfg file, which contains the configuration necessary to install features

  • sprinter formulas, which each feature uses as it’s instruction manual on how to setup, update, and remove itself
