To build the package:

python build

To install the package:

python install

To install the package locally (i.e. if you don't have root permissions), try the following:

python install --user
python install --prefix=$HOME/.local
python install --prefix=/your/favorite/directory
export PYTHONPATH=/your/favorite/directory

The python packages "setuptools" and "virtualenv" are helpful in setting up a Python environment in your local directory.

To turn the package into a distributable .tar.bz2 file:

python sdist
