aeidon is a Python package for reading, writing and manipulating text-based subtitle files. It is used by the gaupol package, which provides a 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
python3 setup.py --without-gaupol install [--prefix=...] python3 setup.py --without-aeidon install [--prefix=...]
Note that the
--without-* are global options and must
be placed before any commands.
Of the dependencies listed in the
README.md 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.
