python-wheel.cygclass

[ Top ] [ Cygclasses ] [ Cygclasses ]

DESCRIPTION

Wheels are the new standard for installing Python libraries and programs. The build is defined by a setup.py file in the top source directory, which controls the installation of files and the building of C Python extensions. Many such packages are hosted on the Python Package Index (PyPI).

This cygclass handles the building of wheel-based Python module packages for multiple Python versions simultaneously.

EXAMPLE

    inherit python-wheel
    
    NAME="python-six"
    VERSION=1.10.0
    RELEASE=1
    CATEGORY="Python"
    SUMMARY="Python 2 and 3 compatibility library"
    DESCRIPTION="Six is a Python 2 and 3 compatibility library. It provides
    utility functions for smoothing over the differences between the Python
    versions with the goal of writing Python code that is compatible on both
    Python versions."

PKG_NAMES (python-wheel)

[ Top ] [ python-wheel.cygclass ] [ Overloads ]

DESCRIPTION

For a NAME of python-foo, pythonXY-foo binary packages are created automatically, corresponding to each X.Y version in PYTHON_WHEEL_VERSIONS. Each package also includes its own independent copy of the automatically installed documentation (COPYING, README, etc.). For those packages which install scripts into /usr/bin, these should be added to the respective pythonXY_foo_CONTENTS.
