PyBuilder

Build Status PyPI version Python versions Coverage Status Ready in backlog Open bugs

PyBuilder is a software build tool written in 100% pure Python and mainly targets Python applications.

PyBuilder is based on the concept of dependency based programming but also comes along with powerful plugin mechanism that allows the construction of build life cycles similar to those known from other famous (Java) build tools.

PyBuilder is running on the following versions of Python: 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4 and PyPy.

See the Travis Build for version specific output.

Installing

PyBuilder is available using pip:

$ pip install pybuilder

See the Cheeseshop page for more information.

Getting started

PyBuilder emphasizes simplicity. If you want to build a pure Python project and use the recommended directory layout, all you have to do is create a file build.py with the following content:

from pybuilder.core import use_plugin

use_plugin("python.core")
use_plugin("python.unittest")
use_plugin("python.coverage")
use_plugin("python.distutils")

default_task = "publish"

See the PyBuilder homepage for more details.

Plugins
