Minitage is an industrialisation collection of tools (mostly python based, patches in C break ohloh analysis) composed of:
- a meta packages manager.
- buildout recipes
- PythonPaste templates:
- to deploy new project
- to deploy databases backends inside a living project (example: a postgresql instance)
* Its main spirit is to be project centric (opposed as system centric) and to vbe isolated from the host system environment.
* It’s goal is to integrate build systems / other package manager together to make them install in a ‘well known’ layout.
* Another subsidiary goal is to standardize installations, and make development environments as similar as possible with production deployment
