EasyBuild: building software with ease
The easybuild-easyblocks package provides a collection of easyblocks for EasyBuild (http://hpcugent.github.com/easybuild), a software build and installation framework written in Python that allows you to install software in a structured, repeatable and robust way.
Easyblocks are Python modules that implement the install procedure for a (group of) software package(s). Together with the EasyBuild framework, they allow to easily build and install supported software packages.
The code of the easybuild-easyblocks package is hosted on GitHub, along with an issue tracker for bug reports and feature requests, see http://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild-easyblocks.
The EasyBuild documentation is available on the GitHub wiki of the easybuild meta-package, see http://github.com/hpcugent/easybuild/wiki/Home.
easybuild-framework (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/easybuild-framework): the EasyBuild framework, which includes the easybuild.framework and easybuild.tools Python packages that provide general support for building and installing software
easybuild-easyconfigs (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/easybuild-easyconfigs): a collection of example easyconfig files that specify which software to build, and using which build options; these easyconfigs will be well tested with the latest compatible versions of the easybuild-framework and easybuild-easyblocks packages
