Bundling a Python application on Mac OS X with VirtualEnv
When it comes to distributing Python packages, Python has its own mechanism. The tooling (either easy_install or pip) allows you to install a Python package and its dependencies. Typically, those packages are installed as Python Eggs (Java has Jars, Ruby has Gems and Python has Eggs). However, one can not expect Mac users to use these command line tools to download and install Python applications, especially GUI applications.
