Package which provides API and scripts to manage a skin directory of a VUDO app.

Project Description


This package provides an light-weight API for vudo packages which provide user-changeable skins. These packages may advertise their skin directory using setuptools entry points.

Additionally, this package provides a script to manage the skin directory of a vudo project in a convenient way.


Developers, which want to make vudo packages which provide skins, need to include their skin resources in the EGG, and include a entry point.

Skin Resources

Depending whether or not a SCM system supported by setuptools (currently SVN) is used or not, developers may need to include their resources manually using package_data:

      package_dir = {'': 'src'},
      package_data = {
          "vudo.compositepage": [

Entry Point

Additionally to include the skin resources in the package egg, the skin needs to be advertized using a entry point:

      # -*- Entry points: -*-
      compositepage=vudo.compositepage:provide_skin [skin]
          "skin": "vudo.skinsetup",

The provide_skin mentioned above needs to call the vudo.skinsetup package API to return the skin information:

def provide_skin():
    import os
    from vudo.skinsetup import provide_skin
    return provide_skin(

the parameters to the provide_skin method are as follows:

The package name which provides the skin
The skin name
The path to the skin within the package. Note, this is usually a setuptools resource path, and thus always “/” separated. Do not use os.path.
