I like the idea of portable apps. Load a USB drive and you're ready to go.
I am switching from PHP to Python and I'm curious if anyone has tried
using USB sticks for either development or distribution?
I was looking at purchasing Movable Python for a USB stick. I was then
going to load it up with Twisted, GTK, Leo, py2exe, py2app, protable
firefox, portable thunderbird and the Uniform Server. Zip the drive,
backup the file and I have an instant recovery. My development
environment is safe and stable.
My users are not very sophisticated so I wanted to use a USB drive for
distribution. They'll plug in the USB stick, which will automatically
start the webserver (Uniform Server). Then they'll interact with a wiki
style website. Later they can sync their personal server with an online
server somewhere for publication and backup. Later I'll include a GTK
frontend and twisted server.
Does this sound reasonable? Are their any alternatives to Movable
