Tools for removing the tedious nature of creating nixpkgs derivations

Project description

# python nixpkgs tools

[![Build Status](](

These are scripts written to remove the tedious nature of creating nix
package derivations for nixpkgs. The goal of these scripts is not to
create a perfect package derivation but complete as much as possible
and guide the user on necessary changes.

## python-package-init

usage: python-package-init [-h] [--version VERSION] [--filename FILENAME]

positional arguments:
package pypi package name

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--version VERSION pypi package version (stable if not specified)
--filename FILENAME filename for nix derivation
-f, --force Force creation of file, overwriting when it already

Creates a `default.nix` derivation to go into
`nixpkgs/pkgs/development/python-modules/<pypi-name>/default.nix`. This
script is overly verbose so that you don't have to remember the name
of attributes. Delete the ones that you don't need.

## Hacking on these tools

`nix-shell` will load the correct environment for your usage:
