pytoolbox 11.7.0

Toolbox for Python scripts

Afraid of red status ? Please click on the link, sometimes this is not my fault ;-)

This module is a Toolbox for Python scripts.

Documentation: https://pytoolbox.readthedocs.org

Repository: https://github.com/davidfischer-ch/pytoolbox

This library supports Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and PyPy. And try to support 2.6 and 3.2, see Travis CI build matrix.

What the release number stands for ?

I do my best to follow this interesting recommendation : Semantic Versioning 2.0.0

How to install it (Python 2.7) ?

Install some packages that are not handled by pip:

sudo apt-get install gir1.2-gexiv2-0.10 libexiv2-dev liblzma-dev libxml2-dev libxslt-dev libyaml-dev libz-dev
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg git-core python-dev python-gi python-pip screen

Make sure that pip is up-to-date (PIPception):

sudo pip-2.7 install --upgrade pip

Then, you only need to run setup.py:

python2 setup.py test
sudo python2 setup.py install

How to install it (Python 3.5) ?

Install some packages that are not handled by pip:

sudo apt-get install gir1.2-gexiv2-0.10 libexiv2-dev liblzma-dev libxml2-dev libxslt-dev libyaml-dev libz-dev
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg git-core python3-dev python3-gi python3-pip screen

Make sure that pip is up-to-date (PIPception):

sudo pip-3.5 install --upgrade pip

Then, you only need to run setup.py:

python3 setup.py test
sudo python3 setup.py install

How to enable features/modules ?

Example:

python setup.py install --help

Common commands: (see '--help-commands' for more)

  setup.py build      will build the package underneath 'build/'
  setup.py install    will install the package

Global options:
  --verbose (-v)  run verbosely (default)
  --quiet (-q)    run quietly (turns verbosity off)
  --dry-run (-n)  don't actually do anything
  --help (-h)     show detailed help message
  --no-user-cfg   ignore pydistutils.cfg in your home directory

Options for 'WithExtra' command:
  ...
  --extra-all                          Install dependencies for all features.
  --extra-atlassian                    Install dependencies for the feature atlassian.
  --extra-django                       Install dependencies for the feature django.
  --extra-django-filter                Install dependencies for the feature django_filter.
  --extra-django-formtools             Install dependencies for the feature django_formtools.
  --extra-flask                        Install dependencies for the feature flask.
  --extra-mongo                        Install dependencies for the feature mongo.
  --extra-rest-framework               Install dependencies for the feature rest_framework.
  --extra-selenium                     Install dependencies for the feature selenium.
  --extra-smpte2022                    Install dependencies for the feature smpte2022.
  --extra-voluptuous                   Install dependencies for the feature voluptuous.

usage: setup.py [global_opts] cmd1 [cmd1_opts] [cmd2 [cmd2_opts] ...]
   or: setup.py --help [cmd1 cmd2 ...]
   or: setup.py --help-commands
   or: setup.py cmd --help


sudo python setup.py install --extra-smpte2022

Another way to do this, with pip:

sudo pip install -e .[django,flask,mongo,smpte2022] --use-mirrors

How to check coverage ?

python setup.py test
xdg-open tests/cover/index.html

How to use it ?

Here is an example hello.py using the cmd function provided by pytoolbox:

from pytoolbox.subprocess import cmd

print(cmd('echo Hello World!')['stdout'])

How to generate documentation ?

The documentation is generated by Sphinx. In fact most of this documentation is extracted from the docstrings of the code.

Here is the procedure:

python setup.py docs
xdg-open docs/build/html/index.html

How to add it to dependencies of my own project ?

Here is an example setup.py for a project called my-cool-project:

from setuptools import setup

setup(name='my-cool-project',
          version='0.8',
          author='Firstname Lastname',
          author_email='author@something.com',
          install_requires=['...', 'pytoolbox', '...'],
          tests_require=['nose'],
          license='GPLv3',
          url='https://github.com/nickname/my-cool-project',
          packages=['my_cool_project'])

See pip vcs support to get further details about this.

You also need to install git-core, but it is probably already the case, at least on your development computer ;-)
