A Python-esque alternative to Ant

22 Jul, 2003

Pynt is "a scripting language designed to simplify running builds". Nice. It's similar in intent to Ant, but has a Python-like syntax allowing true scripting.

IMHO the most promising feature is the ability to encapsulate re-usable build-logic in methods. In Ant, you'd need to create a custom task (ie. drop into Java), or invoke Ant recursively (very ugly and frustrating).
