No, it isn't buildout-like.
Buildout is extensible with recipes. This way it can write config files,
install node modules, etc.
Platter "only" has the possibility of a pre/post install script where
you can/must doe all these extra tasks.
It *might* be a replacement of buildout *for you*, but that depends on
how you use buildout.
