A simple Python plugin framework.

Project Description

LiveTribe’s simple Python plugin framework.

See the LiveTribe site for more information. See github for the latest source.


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,

Issues / Questions / Feedback

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 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:

  • (to generate documentation) sphinx
  • (to auto-discover tests) nose


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()


Full Documentation:

You will need sphinx installed to generate the documentation. Documentation can be generated by running python 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 test in the root of the distribution. Tests are located in the tests/ directory.
