Python distutils extension to create virtualenv built distributions.

Project description

Implements a python distutils bdist_venv2 command for creating a virtualenv built distribution.

It was based on what was already done by:

but incorporates ideas from:

Install

sudo pip install bdist-venv2

Example

Say you want to distribute a project called my-project. Get to its setup.py:

cd ~/code/my-project/src
ls
...
setup.py
...

Make sure you are not in a virtualenv (you can’t create a virtualenv from within a virtualenv). If you in one exit it:

deactivate

You can either create a “relocatable” virtualenv ala bdist_venv:

python setup.py bdist_venv2 -f gztar

or one “fixed-up” to be unpacked to a particular location:

python setup.py bdist_venv2 -l /usr/lib/my-package -f gztar

You’ll find the results in dist which might look something like:

ls dist
...
dist/my-package-0.1.0.linux_x86_64-py2.7.tar.gz
...

depending on your environment.

Usage

python setup.py bdist_venv2 --help
