A package template for use with the Extender Package Index.

Project description

The expi_skel package provides a template for creating packages for the Extender Package Index (expi). In addition to preconfigured standard Python packaging files, such as setup.py and MANIFEST.in, the skeleton contains a sample expi.json file and vi/ directory.

To create your own package, export the expi_skel repository and use it as a template:

git clone https://bitbucket.org/cbinckly/expi_skel.git my_package_name

The expi.json file contains additional metadata about the package, such as compatible Sage 300 and Orchid Extender versions, which Sage Views and Screens are involved, and information on visibility and licensing.

The additional metadata enables expi to automatically generate package landing pages and selectively serve packages only to authorized users. It enables the Python Package Manager for Extender to perform compatiblity checking so customizations are only ever installed on compatible systems.

The vi directory may contain Extender modules, *.vi files, that will be registered with Extender automatically after the Python package installation has completed.
