An add-on for setuptools to simplify building executables and static libraries

Project description

Distutils/Setuptools provides a fantastic cross platform framework for building python packages, including binary extensions using your platforms standard c/c++ compiler.

Why should it be limited only to use on python pyd extensions however, there’s nothing to stop it being used for compiling anything with said comiler, such as executables and static libraries.

Well it turns out all the functionality is already there, it just isn’t really exposed to the end user very easily. This is easily rectified however:

from setuptools import setup
from ext_targets import build_ext, StaticLib, Executable


setup(
    name='binaries!',  # This isn't actually used in the built targets
    cmdclass={'build_ext': build_ext},
    ext_modules=ext_modules = [
        StaticLib(
            name='saveforlater',
            sources=['lib.c', 'required.c'],
            include_dirs=['../include']
        ),
        Executable(
            name='my_program',
            sources=['source.c', 'extra.cpp'],
            libraries=['libsaveforlater']
            language='c++',
            include_dirs=['../include'],
            extra_compile_args=['-static'],
            extra_link_args=['-static']
        )
    ]
)
