Yes, you can write a custom virtualenv bootstrap script as documented here: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/virtualenv#creating-your-own-bootstrap-scripts You can then distribute just your bootstrap script, and all somebody has to do is download and run it (assuming they have python). The bootstrapper will then fetch and run virtualenv, install easy_install into the virtualenv, and do anything else you put in your bootstrapper. Personally I've never tried combining virtualenv and buildout. -- Paul Winkler http://www.slinkp.com _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
