Detailed Documentation

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:


This recipe supports the same options as the pybsddb module in It accepts the names of the environment variables as
variable names and then sets those that are defined so ``pybsddb`` can
find them at build time.

Set the include directory

Set the lib directory

Set the root of the build. If it is built in the buildout,
I.e. ${bdb:location} if the BerkeleyDB section is named bdb.

Set some ``LFLAGS``

Set some ``LIBS``

Example usage

I don't really understand the testing environment here so the below is broken.

We'll start by creating a buildout that uses the recipe::

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... """
... [buildout]
... parts = bsddb3
... [bdb]
... location = somdir
... [bsddb3]
... recipe = koansys.recipe.pybsddb
... berkeleydb_dir = ${bdb:location}
... """
Running the buildout gives us::

>>> print 'start', system(buildout)
Installing bsbddb.
Unused options for test1: 'option2' 'option1'.
