xbob.buildout 0.4.0

zc.buildout recipes to perform a variety of tasks required by Bob satellite packages

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 1.0.3

This package contains a number of recipes to be used to build Satellite Packages for Bob, a signal-processing and machine learning toolbox originally developed by the Biometrics Group at Idiap, in Switzerland.

Note

You normally don’t need to download this package directly. It will be done by zc.buildout automatically, if you followed our recipe to build Satellite Packages.

C++/Python Extension

This extension allows you to compile C/C++ extensions that depend on each other using a buildout. It assures that eggs living in both develop-eggs and eggs are on your path before building the packages in the develop section. By using this extension you can drop the use of the local recipe xbob.buildout:develop, which should be considered deprecated.

Supported Options

verbose

If set, it will output the compilation commands while compiling the module.

prefixes

A list of directories where this recipe will look for subdirectories with the stem lib/pkgconfig. All directories matching this condition are appended to the pkg-config environment using the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH.

debug

If set, the module will be compiled with debugging symbols and with optimization turned off.

flags

Adds the given flags to CFLAGS and CXXFLAGS. It can also be used to set debugging or release options if you prefer. This list of flags has priority over the debug settings.

Multi-Script Installer

This recipe installs all most used scripts and interpreter proxies for your package. It will look at the buildout section entry called prefixes, that potentially lists prefixes that should be prepended to the default python environment. In these prefixes, it will look for standard python directories. If one or more are found, these paths are prepended into the resulting scripts generated by this recipe and eggs will be searched on those locations prioritarily.

By default, this recipe will use the eggs defined at the buildout section called eggs, but that can be overriden locally. It generates these scripts:

python
A pre-configured python interpreter
ipython
Makes sure ipython is installed and ready for use.
pylint
A code checker using PyLint will be created so you can check your code for conformance.
nosetests
A test runner called nosetests will be created on the bin directory of buildout.
sphinx
Several sphinx utilities will be created on the bin directory of buildout.
package scripts
Package scripts will be created taking into account the prefixes established for this section or globally (as a second priority).

To use this recipe, you just have to simply do:

[scripts]
recipe = xbob.buildout:scripts

Common Supported Options

The recipe supports the following options:

prefixes
A list of directories where this recipe will look for subdirectories with the stem lib/python*/site-packages. All directories matching this condition are appended to the search paths. If not given, the value of this property defaults to buildout.prefixes. Both can be empty, which makes this recipe default to using standard available paths.
eggs
The eggs option specifies a list of eggs to use for building this package. Each string must be given on a separate line. If not given, the value of this property defaults to buildout.eggs.
dependent-scripts
If set to the string true, scripts will be generated for all required eggs in addition to the eggs specifically named.
interpreter
The name of a script to generate that allows access to a Python interpreter that has the path set based on the eggs installed. If you don’t specify anything, the default value python will be used.
extra-paths
Extra paths to be appended in a generated script. To prepend, using the prefixes entry.
nose-flags
These are extra flags that are appended to the given nosetests command line, automatically. Use this to preset arguments you like running all the time like -v, for example.

Other Recipes

This package also provides recipes that allow for the discrete installation of interpreters and support programs, lumped together with the scripts recipe described above. You can use some of the options described above with these recipes. For example, the prefixes, eggs and extra-paths are considered by all these recipes.

Note

Use of these individual recipes should be done with care. The scripts recipe should be used by default, unless you have a special requirement that is not covered by that recipe.

python
This recipe generates just a python interpreter on the binary directory. Extra options considered: interpreter.
ipython
This recipe generates an IPython interpreter on the binary directory. Extra options considered: interpreter.
egg.scripts
This recipe generates only the scripts (and dependent scripts) for the package. Extra options considered: dependent-scripts.
pylint
No extra options for this recipe.
nose
This recipe generates only the nosetests program. Extra options considered are:nose-flags.
sphinx
This recipe generates only the Sphinx documentation generator applications. Extra options considered: none.
gdb-python
This recipe generates a gdb launcher using the python interpreter so you can start your scripts directly typing gdb-python myscript.py.
