Abseil Python Common Libraries
This repository is a collection of Python library code for building Python applications. The code is collected from Google's own Python code base, and has been extensively tested and used in production.
- Simple application startup
- Distributed commandline flags system
- Custom logging module with additional features
- Testing utilities
To install the package, simply run:
pip install absl-py
Or install from source:
python setup.py install
To run Abseil tests, you can clone the git repo and run bazel:
git clone https://github.com/abseil/abseil-py.git cd abseil-py bazel test absl/...
Please refer to smoke_tests/sample_app.py as an example to get started.
Full documentation is forthcoming on https://abseil.io. For now, please refer to the in-code Python docstrings.
The current repository includes an initial set of libraries for early adoption. More components and interoperability with Abseil C++ Common Libraries will come in future releases.
