Welcome to "distutils_foo"

"distutils_foo" is a Python demo application prepared for distribution by distutils http://docs.python.org/2/distutils/

It shows how to write a Python application and a Python setup script, which can be distributed and installed on a different computer easily. It is also an example for the renaming of packages for distribution.

So it's for education. I learned by creating the project, that you should'nt put a Python module and a Python package with same name in a directory ( which you can easily do on Windows,.. ).

Requirements

"distutils_foo" is for Python 2.7 and is prepared to run on Python 3.x ( untested ).

It was tested with Python 2.7 on Windows.

Step 1: Download+Unzipping

On Unix / Linux: Download "distutils_foo"-master.zip from GitHub into your home directory /home/

Extract from that directory: unzip distutils-master.zip The distutils directory will be created and populated under /home/

On Windows: Download "distutils_foo"-master.zip from GitHub and unzip it into any directory, e.g. C:\users\public\distutils_foo

Step 2: : Installation from the development directory

Open a console in the extraction path and execute:

python setup.py install

Using pip:

pip install distutils_foo

Alternative step 2: Installation of a distribution

Step 2a: Generation of a distribution

Open a console in the extraction path and execute:

python setup.py sdist

This creates, in case of version 1.00, the zip archive

"dist/distutils_foo-1.0.zip"

Open a console in the directory "dist" and unzip the just created archive:

unzip distutils_foo-1.0.zip

This creates, in case of version 1.00, the directory

"distutils_foo-1.0.zip"

Step 2b: Installation of the distribution

Open a console in the directory "distutils_foo-1.0" ( in case of version 1.00 ) and execute:

python setup.py install

Using pip:

pip install distutils_foo

Usage

You may call "distutils_foo" on commandline by

distutils_foo-script

or by operatings-system specific commands on Windows:

distutils_foo.bat

and on Linux:

distutils_foo.sh

from any directory of the filesystem of your operating system. It displays a copyright message and messages which prove that it may load some other project modules ( subfoo and subfoo2 ) and creates the files "subfoo.txt" and "subfoo2.txt" in the current directory from which it was called.
