Talk:Sugar Activity Builder
There's some related code here: http://dev.laptop.org/git.do?p=bundle-builder;a=summary
This builds an activity from a normal Python setup.py file. This is much simpler than using automake, especially for pure-python activities. A skeleton builder could still definitely be useful, and a Hello World activity would also be useful as a demonstration.
Note however that this builds in the proposed activity bundles, not the actual current bundles. So it doesn't work Right Now.
If you try using this, you'll probably be the first. It might be a good idea to do it while I'm around, ianbicking on IRC or email@example.com
