Maven for ubuntu & python?

Asked by wensveen on 2009-10-13

I read about this project on the Ubuntu 9.10 technical overview. This looks very promising.

Just for my understanding, is quickly for ubuntu / python like what maven is for java?
Except maybe the dependency management, but the templating (archetypes in mvn) does look alike. Also in common: simple commands to build and distribute, plugins to integrate other languages.

Best regards,

Hey Matthijs,

You're both right and wrong :)
Quickly is not binded to a specific project or language.
Quickly have a core that can use templates. The only existing template as of today is ubuntu-project template which is devoted to build application on Ubuntu using python with Ubuntu advised development tools.

But you can create template for everything, like for java application, shell, LaTeX document, and so on...

I guess you can be interested in some added explanation in this blog post suit:

Thanks! Also for the interesting blog articles.
BTW, maven is not entirely bound to java per se. There are plugins for compiling C, C# and other languages as well, but it is most commonly used for java.
