collective.recipe.distutils 0.1

A buildout recipe to install distutils Python packages.

For Python packages which are only installable with distutils, and aren't yet available as eggs. This recipe will download a distutils tarball, build it and place it inside your buildout inside a parts/site-packages directory.

It is up to you to inform your Python about this site-packages directory. You might do this with the zc.recipe.egg recipe:

[buildout]
parts =
    mypython

[mypython]
recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs = zc.recipe.egg
extra-paths = ${buildout:directory}/parts/site-packages/
interpreter = mypython
scripts = mypython

Options

url
The URL of the archives to download and install. The archive specified will be installed inside a site-packages directory.
build_ext
Additional build options passed to setup.py.

To-Do

Currently only enough work has been done on this recipe to get it to install mx-base and psycopg2. There is lots of room for improvement ...

Example Usage

A sample buildout.cfg that installs mx-base and psycopg2 inside the site-packages directory. It also installs PostgreSQL for building psycopg2, adjusting the build_ext for psycopg2 to point to an existing PostgreSQL install would remove the need for this:

[buildout]
parts =
    egenix-mx-base
    mypython
    postgresql
    psycopg2

[egenix-mx-base]
recipe = collective.recipe.distutils
url = http://downloads.egenix.com/python/egenix-mx-base-3.0.0.zip

[mypython]
recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs = zc.recipe.egg
extra-paths = ${buildout:directory}/parts/site-packages/
interpreter = mypython
scripts = mypython

[postgresql]
recipe = zc.recipe.cmmi
url = http://example.com/postgresql-8.1.9.tar.gz

[psycopg2]
recipe = collective.recipe.distutils
url = http://example.com/psycopg2-2.0.6.tar.gz
build_ext =
        --pg-config=${buildout:directory}/parts/postgresql/bin/pg_config
        --rpath=${buildout:directory}/parts/postgresql/lib
