Python library for using the Mock chroot-based build tool

Project Description

# python-mockchroot
Python library for using Mock (the chroot-based build tool, not the mockup library)

## How do I use this?

Here is a quick example for building an EPEL7 RPM packge from a sources
dircetory and a spec file, where the build configuration comes from
Fedora Koji:

out_dir = '/tmp/results'
mock = MockChroot(config=mock_config.compose(
mock_config.from_koji(target='epel7-build', koji_profile='koji'),['resultdir'].set(out_dir),['root_cache_enable'].set(True),['yum_cache_enable'].set(True)
print('Building SRPM in Mock')
srpms = glob('{0}/*.src.rpm'.format(out_dir))
if len(srpms) == 0:
raise RuntimeError('no srpms found in {0}'.format(out_dir))
elif len(srpms) > 1:
raise RuntimeError('multiple srpms found in {0}'.format(out_dir))
srpm = srpms[0]
print('Building RPM in Mock')
mock.rebuild(src_rpm=srpm, no_clean=True)
