What is situp.py
situp.py originally started out as an attempt to write a simplified CouchApp "client" that followed and reused the python distutils package, the idea being that distutils would take care of lots of the heavy lifting (and provide a few features "out of the box"). After a bit of tinkering it became fairly apparent that a lot of code would be necessary to override distutils behaviour. So now situp.py is just another CouchApp client (and an excuse to experiment with a few things).
A key feature of situp is that it's only dependency is python - this makes it easy to use in automated test/install situations. If you don't want to use minification it's a single file.
- single file, 0 dependencies
- support Kanso packages
- manage multiple design documents
- push to multiple servers from one call
- don't expose passwords to screen
You can generate the situp.py documentation, using sphinx, by issuing the following command in the situp directory:
make -f docs/Makefile html
Or read it online http://drsm79.github.com/situp/html/ (this may lag checked out code until I automate the doc building).
