Eggpaths buildout recipe

This package provides a buildout recipe to get the paths to the eggs that have been installed. This is useful for referencing paths within an egg in a later buildout part, such as Apache aliases to a Django media directory.

The values are provided as buildout parameters in the section of which this is the recipe.

For example:

recipe = isotoma.recipe.eggpaths
eggs = Nose

recipe = isotoma.recipe.apache
aliases = /media:${eggpaths:Django}/contrib/admin/media

This recipe will also create a text file called eggpaths.txt in the parts directory, which can be used for reference

Mandatory parameters
