Make pkg installer and dmg from wheels

Project description


A Python utility to build an OSX disk image and .pkg installer to install a given set of wheels.

The idea is that any package that can be installed via pip can also have a safe dmg installer, because we use pip to install the wheels, and pip will manage the dependencies.

The installer only installs into Python, but includes instructions on how to install manually into macports and homebrew.

Here’s how to make an installer for matplotlib 1.4.0:

wheels2dmg matplotlib 1.4.0 matplotlib --python-version 3.4.1

Or for more than one package:

wheels2dmg scipy-stack 1.0 scipy matplotlib ipython[notebook] \
    pandas numexpr sympy --python-version 2.7.8



Released under the BSD two-clause license - see the file LICENSE in the source distribution.

travis-ci kindly tests the code automatically under Python 2.7, 3.3 and 3.4.

The latest released version is at
