Install packages using the new hotness in Python package management...
pip. Yo dawg...easy_install is so 2009, you better ask your local Pythonista if you don't know! The usage semantics are like that of any normal package provider.
- :install: Install a pip package - if version is provided, install that specific version
- :upgrade: Upgrade a pip package - if version is provided, upgrade to that specific version
- :remove: Remove a pip package
- :purge: Purge a pip package (this usually entails removing configuration files as well as the package itself). With pip packages this behaves the same as
- package_name: name attribute. The name of the pip package to install
- version: the version of the package to install/upgrade. If no version is given latest is assumed.
- virtualenv: virtualenv environment to install pip package into
- options: Add additional options to the underlying pip package command
- timeout: timeout in seconds for the command to execute. Useful for pip packages that may take a long time to install. Default 900 seconds.
# install latest gunicorn into system path python_pip "gunicorn" do action :install end # target a virtualenv python_pip "gunicorn" do virtualenv "/home/ubunut/my_ve" action :install end # install Django 1.1.4 python_pip "django" do version "1.1.4" action :install end # use this provider with the core package resource package "django" do provider Chef::Provider::PythonPip action :install end
virtualenv is a great tool that creates isolated python environments. Think of it as RVM without all those hipsters and tight jeans.
- :create: creates a new virtualenv
- :delete: deletes an existing virtualenv
- path: name attribute. The path where the virtualenv will be created
- interpreter: The Python interpreter to use. default is
- owner: The owner for the virtualenv
- group: The group owner of the file (string or id)
# create a 2.6 virtualenv owned by ubuntu user python_virtualenv "/home/ubuntu/my_cool_ve" do owner "ubuntu" group "ubuntu" action :create end # create a Python 2.4 virtualenv python_virtualenv "/home/ubuntu/my_old_ve" do interpreter "python2.4" owner "ubuntu" group "ubuntu" action :create end
