Packaging up a Python/Twisted Matrix application...

P: n/a
I have a rather large Python/Twisted Matrix application that will be run
on Windows, Linux and perhaps Macs. I was wondering if there are any
tools that can be used to create an installer that will bring in Python,
Twisted Matrix, my application libraries and anything else I need?

I have tried using ezsetup with no luck (it seems not everything can be
installed with it). I was hoping to find something as nice (and
complete) as Perl's CPAN but can't seem to find anything.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Peace,
Chaz.

I haven't tried with Twisted, but I had success in using py2exe + Inno
Setup on a program dependent on Python + ReportLab + pygtk. As both
ReportLab and pygtk got even C extensions, I don't see why this setup
wouldn't work with Twisted.

For windows, py2exe is the de facto standard and it works fine with Twisted.

There are similar scripts for the other platforms but I'm not familiar
with them, I understand py2app is the standard for OS X.

Note that OS X and pretty much every version of linux ship with
Python, you might re-think your need to distribute a binary and
instead just use a distutils install.
