This project is part of the GNU Project.

The limitations of common methods of configuring and installing Python packages, such as distutils, quickly become apparent for larger software packages, particularly those which also incorporate source code written in other languages such as C or Fortran. Meanwhile, the language-agnostic standard GNU method comprised of a configure script and a Makefile are time-proven and highly flexible.

pyconfigure extends this capability to Python-based projects through robust m4 macros for use with Autoconf and a set of template scripts and Make recipes that, in many cases, can be simply dropped into an existing project without further modification (though modification, of course, opens up new possibilities).

Registration Date: Tue 06 Nov 2012 10:49:22 PM UTC
License: Other - The scripts use a general permissive so they can reach widespread use. I feel this is appropriate because it further encourages the use of GNU software (Make and Autoconf in particular). This is precedented by autoconf-archive.
Development Status: 4 - Beta
