Sprinter is a tool to help create environment bootstrapping scripts for developer environments.
Sprinter was designed with modularity, adaption, and cross-compability in mind. Some of the features of sprinter include:
$ (sudo) easy_install sprinter
In your console. Alternatively, a sandboxed version of sprinter exists, which will install a sprinter environment containing sprinter. (Holy recursion, Batman!). You can do this with the following one-liner:
$ curl -s https://raw.github.com/toumorokoshi/sprinter/master/examples/sprinter_sandbox.sh > /tmp/sprinter; bash /tmp/sprinter
Debian-Based (e.g. Ubuntu):
$ cd /tmp/; wget https://raw.github.com/toumorokoshi/sprinter/master/examples/sprinter_sandbox.sh; bash sprinter_sandbox.sh
Sprinter is currently actively developed against the following:
However, Sprinter should work against Debian distributions, and most Ubuntu-based distributions.
Feel free to make a ticket with your difficulties with other unix-based operating systems.
There are currently no plans to develop sprinter against non-unix based operating systems.
