Well the ActiveState version includes some
Windows specific libraries out of the box that you would have to
download separately otherwise. They also have their own package
management system (pyp?). Otherwise not much of a difference. |
In Fabric's case, installation requires the compiling of a few things in order to get all of the parts working. On Linux (and also Mac?) this isn't too big of deal, just install a few extra packages and you're off and running. On Windows you would have to jump through a few strange hoops to get everything working right.
In this situation ActiveState does some of that jumping for you by providing the binaries you need, indicated by Step 2 of the steps you quoted.

Why would I want to use the activestate version of Python vs. the one that I can install from http://www.python.org/getit/. I'm new to Python on Windows and have installed it initially to use Fabric, so what are the differences. Thanks in advance.Here is what I do: 1. Install Python 2.7 community edition from activestate.com 2. Is your system 32 or 64 bits? If 32, skip this step. If 64, download and install pycrypto from here. 3. Open command prompt, type "pip install fabric"._______________________________________________ Fab-user mailing list address@hidden https://lists.nongnu.org/mailman/listinfo/fab-user
