Debianize, create debian packages from python packages
Debianize uses fpm (https://github.com/jordansissel/fpm) to create debian packages from python source directories. The only thing it really adds, is that debianize will also create packages for all depencencies that your source package has (install_requires). Debianize will only create a debian package from a python package. So you need a setup.py.
debianize.sh -m "nobody <firstname.lastname@example.org>" -i django -i buildthistoo
-m The maintainer string ("nobody <email@example.com>") (If different as defined in setup.py) -i Using this flag makes following dependencies explicit. It will only build dependencies listed in install_requires that match the regex specified after -i. Use -i multiple times to specify multiple packages -I Use this flag to ignore a dependencies from being built. Packages that match the regex specified after -I. Use -I multiple times add more ignore regexes. -f full path to fpm binary to use. -p full path to pip binary to use.
All flags are optional. Anything after an unknown flag has been encountered, will be passed to fpm as arguments. -i and -I are mutually exclusive.
If you've got a folder named
upstart next to your setup.py, this folder
will be packaged as well, with the same version number as your package, but
.d postfix to your package name.
