The State of Python Packaging (Kelsey Hightower)
- I just won $20 by naming off pretty much all of the Python packaging tools he mentioned.
- I wonder how nice
bentois. I’ve heard about it before, and since it’s from the guys behing NumPy it probably has an interesting take on things.
- PyPM sounds like the bee’s knees for Windows.
- Once again, this guy brings the heat for his presentation.
- Holy cow! There are a lot of PEPs driving this:
PEP-345(Metadata for Python Software Packages 1.2),
PEP-376(database of installed Python distributions),
PEP-386(changing the version comparison in distutils),
PEP-381(mirroring for PyPI),
PEP-396(module version numbers).
pysetupis going to be a more end-user-oriented alternative to
pip, and it will be in the std lib.
Talk about names and values in Python (Brandon Rhodes)
- The material is mostly review, but is well presented (no surprise there, since Brandon is an excellent presenter).
- The point about function/class definitions creating a name is well-taken.
