I have just imported a new module under our SVN tree called 'izpack-
utils'. You can check it out from https://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/
There are 2 applications:
* izpack2exe: generates a Windows executable from an IzPack-generated
installer. Requires 7-Zip and optionally UPX. It should be possible
to run it from non-Windows platforms since UPX and 7-Zip have been
ported to *NIX.
* izpack2app: generates a Mac OS X .app bundle from an IzPack-
generated installer. Works on any platform since it just copies /
The applications are written in Python (quick to hack, cross-platform
and we already use Python to generate the documentation, so ...).
It would be great if you could test it :-)
I plan to use py2exe to generate Windows executables so that people
can run it without needing to install Python. Please note that Python
is mainstream on Linux / BSD and is shipped by default under Mac OS X...
