aeidon is a Python package for reading, writing and manipulating text-based subtitle files. It is used by the gaupol package, which provides a subtitle editor application with a GTK+ user interface.

Separating a user-interface independent general-purpose subtitle editing package from Gaupol has been an afterthought and thus not well designed to be a reusable component, but on the other hand is proven, working and maintained code.


To install only either the aeidon or the gaupol package, use one of the following commands

sudo python3 --without-gaupol install --prefix=/usr/local
sudo python3 --without-aeidon install --prefix=/usr/local

Note that the --with-* and --without-* are global options and must be placed before any commands.


Of the dependencies listed in the file, Python, PyEnchant, iso-codes and chardet are to be associated with aeidon. If aeidon is installed using the --without-iso-codes switch, then iso-codes is required instead of optional. gaupol should depend on the remaining dependencies as well as aeidon of the same version.
