... dir or tarball (re #43)

It wouldn't be that hard to add something to grab from a URL like Django does, and to support zip files as well as tarballs, if there's interest...


This is a great idea that I wanted to do for some time. Give me some time to look at the diff.

  1. Styling: could you make sure we do foo,[space]bar everywhere?
  2. Why do we need the wsgiref added to requirements?

re 1) i'll update the pull request in a minute with a pass that tries to find all of those...
re 2) wsgiref is a dependency of boto, and I made requirements.txt with 'pip freeze' which is completist. We can take it out; it'll get installed anyway with boto.


ok, i think i fixed those issues, and added some more sugar as well. I think I've tested each case (no arg, local dir, local zip, local tar, url zip, and url tar) but it wouldn't hurt for someone else to do it too...


FWIW, a friend pointed me to Middleman's method for handling diverse templates. There's a bit of an appeal to the shorter form of the argument and the idea that they are listable... might be a thought for a future iteration?


Yeah I wanted that too. I think just a hosted file with handle, description and github repo would be pretty ideal.
