Currently, it is not evident where to send the people who want to wrap their extensions into package, or (maybe even more importan) port their eggs.

You're right, it could do with a little more direction. I was thinking about adding a link to the PyPA guide to Packaging your Project. Does that seem appropriate to you?

I don't have time to follow the instruction right, because I am on Windows and don't have compiler installed. But the good proof check would if frida/frida-python#38 could be solved by a person who care little about wheels. The key points:

  • if he could directly understand what needs to be done and what should be available (setup.py?) without bouncing from the site (usually it is scanning page and selecting info in about 0.1-3 seconds)
  • complete the task in 15 minutes

I don't think that we would be able to provide the information required to compile a project like that. Anyone with that sort of project will surely have to use the official docs instead.

pythonwheels.com is of course, not a place to this information, but it should link to the tutorial that is most helpful. In most technical projects, official docs are usually a place of last resort.
