cross-compat flit install

Project description

Cross-compat flit install. Flit doesn’t support Python 2 at all, but authors of cross-compat libs might still want to use flit’s packaging for the simplicity. After pip install flit6 you can use flit install on Python 2 in your CI, with flit whatever else working as usual on Python 3.

I did not port any of flit itself. This project merely subprocesses a Python 3 build of your distribution, and then installs the generated release in the Python 2 environment. That requires flit to exist in the python3 runtime, for build.


Clone the repo and then:

$ pip install pytest pytest-mock
$ pytest

To generate a release, use python bdist_wheel --universal. Upload with twine.
