Provided Commands


Provided and installed application as argument will return the list of direct and indirect depencies used by the application:

$ gearbox pkgdeps turbogears2
| Package      |
| Beaker       |
| repoze.lru   |
| PasteDeploy  |
| MarkupSafe   |
| crank>=0.6.2 |
| WebOb>=1.2   |
| decorator    |


When ran inside a newly quickstarted TurboGears2 application will adapt the application to work with the SCSS version of bootstrap css framework.

This command will add the tgext.scss dependency loaded through tgext.pluggable, will create a bootstrap directory inside the project public_dir with the Twitter bootstrap framework inside and will patch the master template to use the SCSS version instead of the plain CSS one provided by default.


This will create a .hgignore file suitable for TurboGears2 applications inside the directory where it is started.


When started inside a PasteDeploy application directory will generate a configuration for Mozilla Circus to deploy that application under circus supervision.
