Not sure whether this is interesting for anyone, but since I saw some threads about bootstrapping pip and setuptools, I though I might throw in a tool which does this.
For a while now, we've been making eGenix PyRun available, a Python run time that fits into a single file on Unix:
It's a great virtualenv replacement and doesn't rely on the system provided Python installation.
Now, to make installation of PyRun even easier, we added an install script called install-pyrun:
This script downloads the correct PyRun for the platform and then goes on to bootstrap pip and setuptools fully automatically. It does this by fetching the most recent versions of these tools straight from PyPI, without relying on Python (or PyRun).
The script is a simple bash script and uses curl or wget for the fetch operation, so you get certificate checking, HTTPS, etc. for free.
Are you suggesting this as an alternative to PEP453 or just advertising it exists?
