Zip back the eggs which are flattened by buildout

Project Description


Buildout when collecting eggs, always flattens out the eggs as directories. We had a requirement where the eggs are needed as zips not as dirs. So this recipe. This will take a folder as input, iterate through the folders in it and create zip archives out of all folders inside it.


  1. Add the recipe as zipeggs
  2. Specify target=dir where you want the zipped eggs to be
  3. Specify source=dir the directory to find flattened eggs.


[zip] recipe = zipeggs:zipeggs target = dist source = eggs
