buildout.dumppickedversions2 1.1

Dump buildout 2 picked versions.

buildout.dumppickedversions2

buildout.dumppickedversions2 is a simple buildout extension that mimicks the features of buildout.dumppickedversions for buildout version 2.0.1 or later.

The problem and it's solution

After upgrading buildout to version 2 you'll notice that use of buildout.dumppickedversions has been disabled. This has been done because part of the features of buildout.dumppickedversions have been integrated into buildout.

However the overwriting behavior of buildout.dumppickedversions has not been integrated. This extension monkey patches the built-in version dumping so it behaves more like buildout.dumppickedversions.

An added benefit is that the configuration options haven't been changed. This means that upgrading you buildout file is a simple addition of the number two to extensions = buildout.dumppickedversions.

buildout.dumppickedversions2 requires zc.buildout 2.0.1 or later.

buildout.dumppickedversions2 options

dump-picked-versions-file
A file name you want buildout.dumppickedversions to write to. If not given buildout.dumppickedversions will dump the versions to the screen. The latter behavior is now built into buildout and can be enabled without an extension by setting show-picked-versions to true.
overwrite-picked-versions-file
If set to true, buildout.dumppickedversions will overwrite the file defined in dump-picked-versions-file if it exists. This value defaults to True.

Detailed Documentation

Let's create an egg to use it in our tests:

>>> mkdir('myegg')
>>> write('myegg', 'setup.py',
... '''
... from distutils.core import setup
... setup(name='myegg', version='1.0')
... ''')
>>> write('myegg', 'README', '')
>>> print system(buildout + ' setup myegg bdist_egg')
Running setup script 'myegg/setup.py'.
...

Create a buildout and use buildout.dumppickedversions2:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... '''
... [buildout]
... extensions = buildout.dumppickedversions2
... parts = myegg
... find-links = https://pypi.python.org/simple/zc.recipe.egg/
...              %s
... [myegg]
... recipe = zc.recipe.egg
... eggs = myegg
... ''' % join('myegg', 'dist'))

Running the buildout will print information about picked versions:

>>> print system(join('bin', 'buildout'))
Develop distribution: buildout.dumppickedversions2 N.N
...
Versions had to be automatically picked.
The following part definition lists the versions picked:
[versions]
myegg = N.N
setuptools = N.N
zc.recipe.egg = N.N
...

To dump picked versions to a file, we just add an dump-picked-versions-file option and give a file name:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... '''
... [buildout]
... extensions = buildout.dumppickedversions2
... dump-picked-versions-file = versions.cfg
... parts = myegg
... find-links = https://pypi.python.org/simple/zc.recipe.egg/
...              %s
... [myegg]
... recipe = zc.recipe.egg
... eggs = myegg
... ''' % join('myegg', 'dist'))

>>> print system(buildout)
Develop distribution: buildout.dumppickedversions2 N.N
...
Updating myegg.
Picked versions have been written to versions.cfg
...

And here is the content of the file versions.cfg:

>>> cat('versions.cfg')
[versions]
myegg = N.N
setuptools = N.N
zc.recipe.egg = N.N

Next time we run the buildout the file will be overwritten:

>>> print system(buildout)
Develop distribution: buildout.dumppickedversions2 N.N
...
Picked versions have been written to versions.cfg
...

>>> cat('versions.cfg')
[versions]
myegg = N.N
setuptools = N.N
zc.recipe.egg = N.N

Let's create a new egg to use it in our tests, it will require another egg:

>>> mkdir('theiregg')
>>> write('theiregg', 'setup.py',
... '''
... from distutils.core import setup
... setup(name='theiregg', version='1.0', install_requires='myegg')
... ''')
>>> write('theiregg', 'README', '')
>>> print system(buildout + ' setup theiregg bdist_egg')
Running setup script 'theiregg/setup.py'.
...

Create a buildout that uses this new egg:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... '''
... [buildout]
... extensions = buildout.dumppickedversions2
... parts = theiregg
... find-links = https://pypi.python.org/simple/zc.recipe.egg/
...              %s
...              %s
... [theiregg]
... recipe = zc.recipe.egg
... eggs = theiregg
... ''' % (join('theiregg', 'dist'), join('myegg', 'dist')))

Running the buildout will print information about picked versions and who required them:

>>> print system(join('bin', 'buildout'))
Develop distribution: buildout.dumppickedversions2 N.N
...
Versions had to be automatically picked.
The following part definition lists the versions picked:
[versions]
setuptools = N.N
theiregg = N.N
zc.recipe.egg = N.N
<BLANKLINE>
# Required by:
# theiregg==N.N
myegg = N.N
...

This also works when writing to a file:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... '''
... [buildout]
... extensions = buildout.dumppickedversions2
... dump-picked-versions-file = versions.cfg
... parts = theiregg
... find-links = https://pypi.python.org/simple/zc.recipe.egg/
...              %s
...              %s
... [theiregg]
... recipe = zc.recipe.egg
... eggs = theiregg
... ''' % (join('theiregg', 'dist'), join('myegg', 'dist')))

>>> print system(buildout)
Develop distribution: buildout.dumppickedversions2 N.N
...
Updating theiregg.
Picked versions have been written to versions.cfg
...

And here is the content of the file versions.cfg:

>>> cat('versions.cfg')
[versions]
setuptools = N.N
theiregg = N.N
zc.recipe.egg = N.N
<BLANKLINE>
# Required by:
# theiregg==N.N
myegg = N.N

When we don't want to overwrite the file we just add an overwrite-picked-versions-file and set it to false:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... '''
... [buildout]
... extensions = buildout.dumppickedversions2
... dump-picked-versions-file = versions.cfg
... overwrite-picked-versions-file = false
... parts = myegg
... find-links = https://pypi.python.org/simple/zc.recipe.egg/
...              %s
... [myegg]
... recipe = zc.recipe.egg
... eggs = myegg
... ''' % join('myegg', 'dist'))

>>> print system(buildout)
Develop distribution: buildout.dumppickedversions2 N.N
...
Skipped: File versions.cfg already exists.
