Helper modules for making wrapper packages around non-Python code.

Project description

Shrinkwrap provides tools to create lightweight Python package wrappers around non-Python software, and to install such software from project-specific repositories using virtualenv and pip.

A shrinkwrap package is a minimal python package that downloads, compiles and installs software to the virtualenv base directory. The shrinkwrap package behaves just like a regular python package, so both shrinkwrap and non-shrinkwrap packages can be dependencies of each other. We find that this greatly simplifies deployment of Python packages that depend on compiled libraries without requiring the use of system-wide packaging tools, like apt or yum. Shrinkwrap is not an API wrapper generator like SWIG, but does make it easier to install C libraries into a virtualenv before installing a separate Python wrapper around its API.
