A recipe that runs any script to install a part.
This run-script URL allows you to specify an arbitrary script to do the work of the recipe.
The runscript Buildout Recipe
Some software packages are not easily installed using established build patterns, such as “configure, make, make install”. In those cases you want to be able to use arbitrary scripts to build a particular part. This recipe provides a simple implementation to run a Python callable for each installing and updating a part.
>>> import os >>> import z3c.recipe.runscript.tests >>> scriptFilename = os.path.join( ... os.path.dirname(z3c.recipe.runscript.tests.__file__), 'fooscripts.py')
Let’s create a sample buildout to install it:
>>> write('buildout.cfg', ... """ ... [buildout] ... parts = foo ... ... [foo] ... recipe = z3c.recipe.runscript ... install-script = %s:installFoo ... """ %scriptFilename)
The install-script option specifies the module and the function to call during the part installation. The function takes the local and buildout options as arguments. See tests/fooscripts.py for details.
When running buildout, the installFoo() function is called:
>>> print system('bin/buildout') Installing foo. Now executing ``installFoo()``
If we run the buildout again, the update method will be called, but since we did not specify any, nothing happens:
>>> print system('bin/buildout') Updating foo.
Let’s now specify the update script as well, causing the updateFoo() function to be called:
>>> write('buildout.cfg', ... """ ... [buildout] ... parts = foo ... ... [foo] ... recipe = z3c.recipe.runscript ... install-script = %s:installFoo ... update-script = %s:updateFoo ... """ %(scriptFilename, scriptFilename))
But after a change like that, parts will be uninstalled and reinstalled:
>>> print system('bin/buildout') Uninstalling foo. Installing foo. Now executing ``installFoo()``
Only now we can update the part:
>>> print system('bin/buildout') Updating foo. Now executing ``updateFoo()``
And that’s it.
