Obsolete fork of pyzmq

Project Description

We bring you good news!

The official maintainer of the Python pyzmq package, @minrk, has merged our work into the main project!

That’s right — the official version of PyZMQ can now detect the absence of a system-wide ØMQ library and respond by building and linking to its own copy of the library. The PyZMQ distribution carries its own copy of the source code so that no network access is necessary for its install to complete successfully.

This means your project can now simply depend upon normal pyzmq instead of the separate name pyzmq-static.

The main PyZMQ gained this superpower with its release. If you need to use an older version of PyZMQ, then you can simply hard-code a dependency in your requirements.txt or against whatever older version of pyzmq-static you would like to keep using:


Thanks again to Evan Borgstrom for helping me (Brandon Rhodes) maintain this project, and thanks to our users for letting us know how often this distribution of pyzmq helped you get off the ground!
