Build scripts for building PySide from the Git repositories. Supports several Desktop Linux distributions, MeeGo Netbook and Mac OS X. Patches to support other distrubutions/systems welcome.
Initial setup ============= git submodule init git submodule update Install build dependencies ========================== On MeeGo: sudo ./dependencies.meego.sh On Ubuntu: sudo ./dependencies.ubuntu.sh On Arch Linux: sudo ./dependencies.arch.sh On Mac OS X (using Homebrew): sudo ./dependencies.osx.sh On Red Hat Linux, CentOS 6 and Fedora: sudo ./dependencies.fedora.sh On openSUSE: sudo ./dependencies.opensuse.sh Additional dependencies for Mac OS X ==================================== The dependencies script on Mac OS X does not install a C++ toolchain or the Qt libraries. Instead, you should install Xcode and the Qt SDK manually: http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/ http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/sdk-mac-os-cpp Build and install ================= ./build_and_install By default, this will do a Release build. If you want to do a Debug build, you have to uncomment the correct line in environment.sh If you want to build PySide against the Qt SDK, you have to set the environment variable QT_SDK_HOME - this variable needs to be set before "environment.sh" is sourced, and before "build_and_install" is run. To build Qt Mobility bindings (or to rebuild a specific module), pass the module names you want to build as command line arguments, e.g.: ./build_and_install mobility Python 3 Support ================ By default scripts build PySide for Python 2. To build Python 3 version uncomment the following line in "environment.sh": #export PYSIDE_BUILDSCRIPTS_USE_PYTHON3=yes This will use "python3" to determine the Python version and will also take care of passing the right build arguments to Shiboken's CMake. The buildscripts are configured so that the default installation path for PySide will be different if PySide is compiled for Python 3. This has the advantage that you can have PySide for Python 2 and 3 installed without any conflicts. Please note that some parts of PySide (notably pyside-tools and PySide Mobility) are not yet able to handle Python 3 from the CMake scripts, so they will still get built against Python 2 (PySide bugs 1148 and 1149). Updating to the latest version ============================== git submodule foreach git checkout master git submodule foreach git pull Working with the build ====================== source /path/to/environment.sh python /path/to/app.py
