You ...Excellent, thanks for pushing this approach.<br /><br />You can get inspired by a Python based build system for Sage like projects that I wrote for Femhub:<br /><br /><a href="http://github.com/hpfem/femhub/blob/master/spkg/base/femhub-run" rel="nofollow">http://github.com/hpfem/femhub/blob/master/spkg/base/femhub-run</a><br /><br />I have decided to implement dependencies so that one can do things like<br /><br />./femhub -i scipy<br /><br />and it installs all the libraries needed for scipy and scipy itself.<br /><br />Femhub is for doing numerics, finite elements and visualization (VTK).<br /><br />I would also like to create Sage like projects for some of my other programs (electronic structure), but it's currently too much work, so I just create it as optional packages for Femhub.<br /><br />So once PSage is up and running, hopefully more people will consider using spkg packages and building their own distribution around it.Ondřej Čertíkhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02845032202161204018noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8172331420765124703.post-39697277397158923152010-09-02T18:08:56.162-07:002010-09-02T18:08:56.162-07:00Purple?Purple?Tomhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16789068391873377057noreply@blogger.com
