zc.buildout recipe that parses compile time options from config scripts

Project Description

The LibInc recipe can parse CFLAGS, LDFLAGS and other information tipically returned by libraries config scripts like gdal-config, libpng-config and others. The parsed information can be used by other recipes as hexagonit.recipe.cmmi or zc.recipe.egg to make the build process more robust.

The initial version of this recipe has been written within the PrimaGIS topic of the 2007 Plone Naples Sprint and it is used for the PCL/PrimaGIS buildout.

Detailed Documentation

Warning: Work in progress

This zc.buildout recipe is pre-alpha quality.

Supported options

a list of commands that return the linking options, one per line

Example usage

We’ll use a simple config command to demonstrate the recipe.

>>> import os.path
>>> testdata = join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'testdata')
>>> ls(testdata)
-  sample-config

The options are accessible by other recipes:

>>> mkdir(sample_buildout, 'recipes')
>>> write(sample_buildout, 'recipes', '',
... """
... import logging
... class Echo:
...     def __init__(self, buildout, name, options):
..., self.options = name, options
...     def install(self):
...         logging.getLogger('echo', ''))
...         return ()
...     def update(self):
...         pass
... """)
>>> write(sample_buildout, 'recipes', '',
... """
... from setuptools import setup
... setup(
...     name = "recipes",
...     entry_points = {'zc.buildout': ['echo= echo:Echo']},
...     )
... """)

Let’s create a buildout to build and install the package.

>>> write(sample_buildout, 'buildout.cfg',
... """
... [buildout]
... develop = recipes
... parts = package
... [package]
... recipe = recipes:echo
... echo =

...     libraries: ${config-package:libraries}
...     cflags: ${config-package:cflags}
...     ldflags: ${config-package:ldflags}
... [config-package]
... recipe = bopen.recipe.libinc
... flags-command =
...     %(testdata)s/sample-config --cflags
