A Python library for creating "editable wheels"
This library supports the building of wheels which, when installed, will
expose packages in a local directory on
sys.path in "editable mode". In
other words, changes to the package source will be reflected in the package
visible to Python, without needing a reinstall.
Suppose you want to build a wheel that exposes the directory
dirname as an
editable package when installed, equivalent to
pip install -e dirname.
Build your wheel as follows:
from editables import build_editable for filename, content in build_editable(dirname): # Add content to your wheel, under the name filename
By default, this will expose every package in the given directory. You can
control what gets exposed using the
hide arguments of
build_editable (see the docstring for details).
This project doesn't build wheels directly. That's the responsibility of the calling code.
