This is a low-level library for installing a Python package from a wheel distribution. It provides basic functionality and abstractions for handling wheels and installing packages from wheels.

  • Logic for "unpacking" a wheel (i.e. installation).
  • Abstractions for various parts of the unpacking process.
  • Extensible simple implementations of the abstractions.
  • Platform-independent Python script wrapper generation.
