superwrap 0.0.2

The easy way to contribute to python packages

Latest Version: 0.0.4

Superwrap in an extension to virtualenvwrapper that makes it easier to contribute to a python package for the first time.

Here is the current workflow for starting to contribute to a new project for people that use virtualenvwrapper:

$ mkvirtualenv requests
...
(requests)$ ~/Development
(requests)$ git clone git@github.com:kennethreitz/requests.git
...
(requests)$ cd requests
(requests)$ python setup.py develop

And then start working. After setting up Superwrap, it becomes this:

$ workon requests
Setup kennethreitz:requests repo for development
activated
(requests)$ echo "There is no step 2!"

Anytime you use workon with a repo that you don't already have setup, it will create a new virtualenv, find and clone the repo from github into a new directory, change to that directory, and run python setup.py develop. If you use workon with a virtualenv that has been previously setup, it will work the exact same.

Installation

  • First, have virtualenvwrapper configured.
  • Configure where you want new repos to go by setting the SUPERWRAP_DIR evnrionment variable. It will default to ~/Development.
  • (Optional) Configure GITHUB_OAUTH_TOKEN if you want to create a fork of every repo to clone instead of cloning the repo itself.
  • $ pip install superwrap
  • Add the following to $WORKON_HOME/postactivate
#!/bin/bash
proj_name=$(echo $VIRTUAL_ENV|awk -F'/' '{print $NF}')
cd $SUPERWRAP_DIR/$proj_name

Note that this will create issues if your current setup does not consist of virtualenvs and directories with matching names.
