Running a full build

PyBuilder is, of course, built with itself.

This is attained through self-bootstrapping with the build.py file, which lies in the toplevel sources. This script behaves exactly as the PyBuilder program pyb. You can use the install_dependencies task with ./build.py install_dependencies to pull in all the required runtime and build dependencies. Afterwards, running ./build.py will do a full build including all tests, linting and packaging.

The following screencast shows how to get the sources and run a full build from scratch. Please note that you need virtualenv installed.
