Deploying your TG application with an Egg and Easy Install

Q: How can I make a machine in which TG isn't installed, run an app written in TG?

If you quickstarted your application, you should have a setup.py file.

python setup.py bdist_egg

will give you an Egg file that you can copy over to your deployment machine and easy_install.

When you do that, your start script is available to start up the TurboGears server.

Note also that as long as the setup.py lists TurboGears as a requirement, it should be possible for somebody to install your application with just the .egg and easy_install - including the installation of TurboGears itself, with all its dependencies.

This is a pretty killer feature for application deployment, especially since it will also upgrade TurboGears if you use an app that needs a later version of something, etc. If your application has other dependencies besides TurboGears, those can get installed too.
