zc.buildout extension to strip binaries.

Project Description

Buildout Extension to strip binaries

slapos.extension.strip is a buildout extension that finds shared libraries, binary executables and static libraries, and calls strip(1) against them to reduce the size. It is triggered at the end of the buildout process.


Add slapos.extension.strip in [buildout] section’s extensions option like :

extensions = slapos.extension.strip


The following programs are required. If any of them is missing, this extension does nothing.

  • file
  • find
  • strip

Supported Options


Path to file program. Defaults to ‘file’ which should work on any system that has the make program available in the system PATH.


Path to find program. Defaults to ‘find’ which should work on any system that has the find program available in the system PATH.


Path to strip program. Defaults to ‘strip’ which should work on any system that has the strip program available in the system PATH.


A new-line separated list of absolute paths of the files you do not want to strip. Do not refer a section to get its location. If you do like ${bazel:location}/bin/bazel, buildout will not work correctly. Instead do like ${buildout:parts-directory}/bazel/bin/bazel.

An example:

do-not-strip-path =
