Python plugin for development tools for Docker

Project Description

# Python Development Plugin for docker-dev

This plugin makes it easy to use Docker while developing your Python projects.

In development, it’s quite likely that you want to achieve the following:

  • Install your Python distribution in editable mode (e.g., pip install -e .).
  • Mount your distribution as read-only on the container, so that you get instant code reload.

However, those two things conflict, as the container can’t write to the read-only file system. You could drop this constraint and allow the container to write to the directory, but this .egg-info directory wouldn’t be owned by you, which will lead to other problems.

This plugin is a workaround to this issue: It generates the .egg-info in the host system, even before the image is built.
