EasyBuild is an open source build framework written in Python that enables you to install software in a repeatable and consistent way. EasyBuild was motivated by the need for a system that would allow us to build and install multiple versions of a software package, built with different tool-kits in an automated manner. This whilst a huge number of software packages require us to divert from the standard configure - make - make install.
