EasyBuild: building software with ease
The easybuild-framework package is the basis for EasyBuild (http://hpcugent.github.com/easybuild), a software build and installation framework written in Python that allows you to install software in a structured, repeatable and robust way.
This package contains the EasyBuild framework that supports the implementation and use of so-called easyblocks, that implement the software install procedure for a particular (group of) software package(s).
The code of the easybuild-framework package is hosted on GitHub, along with an issue tracker for bug reports and feature requests, see http://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild-framework.
The EasyBuild documentation is available on the GitHub wiki of the easybuild meta-package, see http://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild/wiki/Home.
Related packages: - easybuild-easyblocks (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/easybuild-easyblocks): a collection of easyblocks that implement support for building and installing (groups of) software packages.
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi/easybuild-easyconfigs): a collection of example easyconfig files that specify which software to build, and using which build options; these easyconfigs will be well tested with the latest compatible versions of the easybuild-framework and easybuild-easyblocks packages.
The code in the vsc directory originally comes from VSC-tools (https://github.com/hpcugent/VSC-tools).
