A simple Python plugin framework.
LiveTribe’s simple Python plugin framework.
The LiveTribe Plugins distribution contains a simple Python plugin framework. It defines no classes that need to be implemented nor imposes arbitrary lifecycle events or special plugin information files.
Inspired by Calvin Spealman’s straight plugin, https://github.com/ironfroggy/straight.plugin.
Any issues with, questions about, or feedback for LiveTribe Plugins should be sent to the livetribe-user list on LiveTribe’s Mailing Lists. For confirmed issues or feature requests, open a case on jira. Please do not e-mail any of the LiveTribe developers directly with issues or questions - you’re more likely to get an answer on the list.
If you have distribute installed you should be able to do easy_install livetribe-plugins to install LiveTribe Plugins. Otherwise you can download the project source and do python setup.py install to install.
The LiveTribe Plugins distribution is supported and tested on Python 2.x (where x >= 6) and Python 3.x (where x >= 2).
Additional dependencies are:
Here’s a basic example (for more see the examples section of the docs):
from livetribe.plugins import collect_plugin_classes from acme.framework import Factory for plugin in collect_plugin_classes('acme.plugins', subclasses_of=Factory, recurse=True): instance = plugin() instance.work()

You will need sphinx installed to generate the documentation. Documentation can be generated by running python setup.py doc. Generated documentation can be found in the doc/build/html/ directory.
The easiest way to run the tests is to install nose (easy_install nose) and run nosetests or python setup.py test in the root of the distribution. Tests are located in the tests/ directory.
