Project description


build status code coverage

This package provides common setuptools command utilities if you need to initialize your package with npm, bower or gulp commands.


You are supposed to create in your own package a Yeoman like project folder (for example: your_package/templates).

Add the build_commands dependency to your pretend your_package.

Update your setup.cfg adding the following:

npm = npm -i your_package/templates
bower = bower
gulp = gulp -i your_package/templates -g gulpfile.babel.js

If you are using bower you can add a .bowerrc file to your package root (where your setup.cfg file lives) with the following (see

  "directory": "bower_components",
  "cwd": "./your_package/templates/"

And update your entry points distutils commands:

npm = build_commands:NpmCommand
bower = build_commands:BowerCommand
gulp = build_commands:GulpCommand

This way once installed your your_package you can initialize your Yeoman project with:

$ python install/develop
$ python npm
$ python bower
$ python gulp

And all your frontend stuff will be processed automatically (SASS, minification, uglyfication, etc).
