sprinter 0.6

a utility library to help environment bootstrapping scripts

Latest Version: 1.4.2


You can install sprinter using easy_install:

$ (sudo) easy_install

Or use a sandboxed install:


$ curl -s > /tmp/sprinter; bash /tmp/sprinter

Debian-Based (e.g. Ubuntu):

$ cd /tmp/; wget; bash

A cross-platform environment bootstrapping framework!

Sprinter is a framework designed to making bootstrapping development environments easier. There are three main components to a usable sprinter script:

  • This python egg, to fully utilize the framework
  • a sprinter.cfg file, which contains the configuration necessary to install features
  • sprinter recipes, which each feature uses as it’s instruction manual on how to setup, update, and remove itself

This will install the sprinter command line to your machine. Easy install needs to be installed for now. Conversely, you can use the sandboxer to use sprinter once. (look under examples)

Command list

Install an environment:

$ sprinter install ENVIRONMENT.cfg
$ sprinter install http://myenvironment.cfg

Install the environment specified in the environment.cfg file. It will update an environment if it already exists.:

$ sprinter activate MY_ENVIRONMENT


$ sprinter deaactivate MY_ENVIRONMENT

deactivate MY_ENVIRONMENT:

$ sprinter update MY_ENVIRONMENT


$ sprinter remove MY_ENVIRONMENT
