Debianize, a buildout recipe to create debian 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.
note! If you are not using buildout but still want to use debianize, use https://gist.github.com/2929586, which is just a shell script that does the same, but is configured with flags
[buildout] parts = debianize [debianize] maintainer = email@example.com follow_dependencies = someobscurepackage morestuff ivegotnodebianpackageyet
If you define
follow_dependencies debianize will only create packages for
things that match any of the regex patterns in that option. If omit
follow_dependencies, it will build debian packages for anything defined as
a dependency with
install_requires. You can not use spaces in any of the
patterns! This is useful if some of the dependencies are allready available as
debian packages and others are not.
The above defined
follow_dependencies will be matched like this:
$NAME =~ someobscurepackage|morestuff|ivegotnodebianpackageyet
So it will simply put a
| symbol in between the patterns.
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.
Last but not least
This recipe does not install fpm for you. instead use http://pypi.python.org/pypi/rubygemsrecipe/0.1.6:
[rubygems] recipe = rubygemsrecipe gems = fpm
