install scripts with setup.py

Issue #7 new
Afif Elghraoui created an issue

The installation procedure for this package is quite strange. Running setup.py install will install the libraries, but then the scripts need to be run directly--so you end up needing two copies of the source code.

Please have setup.py install the necessary scripts by setting the scripts parameter in the setup function. See https://docs.python.org/3/distutils/setupscript.html#installing-scripts or use entrypoints https://packaging.python.org/guides/distributing-packages-using-setuptools/#entry-points.

This way, python setup.py install will provide a working installation on its own.
