Paver - Easy Scripting for Software Projects
|Keywords:||build, scripting, make alternative, svn, git, path.py, documentation, automation, tasks, virtualenv, integration|
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.
Current build status:
You can install Paver either via the Python Package Index (PyPI) or from source.
To install a PyPI release using pip:
$ pip install -U Paver
… or alternatively from source (github master):
$ pip install -e git+https://github.com/paver/paver.git#egg=Paver
To install using easy_install:
$ easy_install -U Paver
Reference test suite can be run using Docker:
sudo docker run -it paver/paver
When developing locally, build it first:
sudo docker build -t paver/paver . && sudo docker run -it paver/paver
When trying to debug inside the dev environment, run:
sudo docker run -it paver/paver /bin/bash
Alternatively, on your computer without any virtualization to catch environment-specific bugs:
$ virtualenv paver-venv $ source paver-venv/bin/activate (paver-venv) $ pip install -r test-requirements.txt (paver-venv) $ python setup.py test
