Setuptools/distribute plugin for finding files under Mercurial version control.

Project description

setuptools_hg is a plugin for setuptools/distribute to enable it to find files under the Mercurial version control system.

It uses the Mercurial Python library by default and falls back to use the command line programm hg(1). That’s especially useful inside virtualenvs that don’t have access to the system wide installed Mercurial lib (e.g. when created with --no-site-packages).


Here’s an example of a that uses setuptools_hg:

from setuptools import setup, find_packages


If you run this setuptools will automatically download setuptools_hg to the directory where the is located at (and won’t install it anywhere else) to get all package data files from the Mercurial repository.


Set the HG_SETUPTOOLS_FORCE_CMD environment variable before running if you want to enforce the use of the hg command. “””
