Project Description

xdistutils currently provides a recompress command for python’s setup.py scripts. It uses the advancecomp package in order to achieve better compression on .zip, .egg and .tar.gz files. Other extensions for distutils may be included in future xdistutils releases.

Installation

xdistutils can be installed with pip or easy_install. In order to enable the recompress command, you’ll have to register the package with distutils. This can be done by adding the following to ~/.pydistutils.cfg:

[global]
command-packages=xdistutils

The advancecomp package must be installed on your system.

The recompress command

Every setup.py script now understands a recompress command, which will call advzip or advdef on any .zip, .egg or .tar.gz file generated by previous commands:

> python setup.py sdist bdist_egg recompress
running sdist
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
running check
reading manifest template 'MANIFEST.in'
writing manifest file 'MANIFEST'
creating gevent-1.0dev
creating gevent-1.0dev/c-ares
...
writing build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg/EGG-INFO/native_libs.txt
creating 'dist/gevent-1.0dev-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg' and adding 'build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg' to it
removing 'build/bdist.linux-x86_64/egg' (and everything under it)
running recompress
advzip -z -4 dist/gevent-1.0dev.zip
     1300236     1243960  95% dist/gevent-1.0dev.zip
     1300236     1243960  95%
advzip -z -4 dist/gevent-1.0dev-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg
      366596      354053  96% dist/gevent-1.0dev-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg
      366596      354053  96%

The bdist_msi_fixed command

bdist_msi is used on windows in order to create a .msi installler. It’s part of standard distutils. Though a bug in distutils makes it impossible to upload those .msi files to the python package index with the upload command. bdist_msi_fixed provides a workaround:

> python setup.py bdist_msi_fixed
running bdist_msi_fixed
running bdist_msi
...
> python setup.py bdist_msi_fixed upload
