Converts (packages) Python programs into stand-alone executables
PyInstaller is a program that converts (packages) Python programs into stand-alone executables, under Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, AIX and Solaris. Its main advantages over similar tools are that PyInstaller works with any version of Python since 2.3, it builds smaller executables thanks to transparent compression, it is fully multi-platform, and uses the OS support to load the dynamic libraries, thus ensuring full compatibility. The main goal of PyInstaller is to be compatible with 3rd-party packages out-of-the-box. This means that, with PyInstaller, all the required tricks to make external packages work are already integrated within PyInstaller itself so that there is no user intervention required. You'll never be required to look for tricks in wikis and apply custom modification to your files or your setup scripts. As an example, libraries like PyQt, Django or matplotlib are fully supported, without having to handle plugins or external data files manually.
Cake is a build system that combines the flexibility of Python build scripts with an incremental build speed that matches build systems written in C/C++. It requires Python 2.4-3.2 and natively supports Windows, Linux, Mac, Cygwin, MSVC and GCC.
Cross-platform software dependency build and installation tool
gattai is a cross-platform system for pulling a bunch of dependencies, patching and building them and/or downloading binary packages, and then installing them in a central location. It aims to enable software projects to fully automate build environment setup. gattai is not a replacement for other systems like apt-get, and in fact, it will have the ability to use apt-get when running on a system that supports it. Rather, it aims to both allow an apt-get like setup process on environments that do not support apt-get, and also to allow the ability to set up isolated environments for those that need that.
