Useful Python 3 classes.
The PLIB3.CLASSES package contains a number of useful packages and modules that extend the Python 3 standard library.
Note: PLIB3.CLASSES works with Python 3. If you are using Python 2.7, see the PLIB.CLASSES package, available at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/plib.classes.
The setup.py script for PLIB3.CLASSES uses the setuputils helper module, which helps to automate away much of the boilerplate in Python 3 setup scripts. This module is available as a separate release at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuputils3.
The PLIB3.CLASSES Package
The following classes are available in the plib.classes namespace:
- The StateMachine class implements a basic finite state machine with customizable code to be run at each state transition.
To install PLIB3.CLASSES, you can simply run:
$ python3 setup.py install
at a shell prompt from the directory into which you unzipped the source tarball (the same directory that this README file is in). This will install PLIB3 and then run each of the post-install scripts in the scripts directory.
