jabbatron

Interactive installer script for Ubuntu.

If you have a newly installed (virgin) system, you can easily update it with this script.

I've tested it with Python 2.7 under Ubuntu Linux.

Installation

jabbatron is now available via pypi:

sudo pip install jabbatron

Or, simply download jabbatron.py and launch it. One of the design goals is to keep this script self-contained, so it will always be just one file without any dependencies (or with some minimal dependencies).
