  • writing interactive command line tools

  • manipulation of files and character strings

  • manipulation of common structures such as graph, tree, and pattern such as visitor

  • generating text and HTML reports

  • more…

logilab-common is available on pypi so you can install it using pip

pip install logilab-common

Or alternatively extract the tarball, jump into the created directory and run

python install

For installation options, see

python install --help

Building the documentation

Create a virtualenv and install dependencies

virtualenv venv
source venv/bin/activate

# you need the krb5-config command to build all dependencies
# on debian you can get it using "apt-get install libkrb5-dev"

pip install doc/requirements-doc.txt

# install logilab-common
pip install -e .

Then build the doc

cd doc
make html

It’s now available under doc/_build/html/

Code style

The python code is verified against flake8 and formatted with black.

  • You can run tox -e black to check that the files are well formatted.

  • You can run tox -e black-run to format them if needed.

  • You can include the .hgrc to your own .hgrc to automatically run black before each commit/amend. This can be done by writing %include ../.hgrc at the end of your .hgrc.
