--

Paver is a Python-based software project scripting tool along the lines of Make or Rake. It is not designed to handle the dependency tracking requirements of, for example, a C program. It is designed to help out with all of your other repetitive tasks (run documentation generators, moving files about, downloading things), all with the convenience of Python’s syntax and massive library of code.

Documentation

Current build status:

https://secure.travis-ci.org/paver/paver.png?branch=master

Documentation is hosted on PyPI (docs for development version are on GitHub).

You can install Paver either via the Python Package Index (PyPI) or from source.
