NAME

pybuild − invokes various build systems for requested Python versions in order to build modules and extensions

SYNOPSIS

pybuild [ACTION] [BUILD SYSTEM ARGUMENTS] [DIRECTORIES] [OPTIONS]

DEBHELPER COMMAND SEQUENCER INTEGRATION

build depend on dh−python,

build depend on python3−all, python−all−dbg, pypy, etc. (for all supported Python interpreters, pybuild will use it to create a list of interpreters to build for),

add −−buildsystem=pybuild to dh's arguments in debian/rules,

if more than one binary package is build: add debian/python−foo.install files, or export PYBUILD_NAME=modulename (modulename will be used to guess binary package prefixes), or export PYBUILD_DESTDIR env. variables in debian/rules

debian/rules file example:

#! /usr/bin/make −f
export PYBUILD_NAME=foo
%:
       dh $@ −−with python2,python3 −−buildsystem=pybuild

OPTIONS

Most options can be set (in addition to command line) via environment variables. PyBuild will check:

PYBUILD_OPTION_VERSIONED_INTERPRETER (f.e. PYBUILD_CLEAN_ARGS_python3.2)

PYBUILD_OPTION_INTERPRETER (f.e. PYBUILD_CONFIGURE_ARGS_python3−dbg)

PYBUILD_OPTION (f.e. PYBUILD_INSTALL_ARGS)

optional arguments

−h, −−help

show this help message and exit

−v, −−verbose

turn verbose mode on

−q, −−quiet

doesn't show external command's output

−qq, −−really−quiet

be quiet

−−version

show program's version number and exit

ACTION

The default is to build, install and test the library using detected build system version by version. Selecting one of following actions, will invoke given action for all versions − one by one − which (contrary to the default action) in some build systems can overwrite previous results.

−−detect

return the name of detected build system

−−clean

clean files using auto−detected build system specific methods

−−configure

invoke configure step for all requested Python versions

−−build

invoke build step for all requested Python versions

−−install

invoke install step for all requested Python versions

−−test

invoke tests for auto−detected build system

−−list−systems

list available build systems and exit

TESTS

unittest's discover from standard library (available in Python 2.7 and >= 3.2) is used in test step by default.
−−test−nose

use nose module in test step, remember to add python−nose and/or python3−nose to Build−Depends

−−test−pytest

use pytest module in test step, remember to add python−pytest and/or python3−pytest to Build−Depends

−−test−tox

use tox command in test step, remember to add python−tox to Build−Depends. Requires tox.ini file

BUILD SYSTEM ARGUMENTS

Additional arguments passed to the build system. −−system=custom requires complete command in −−foo−args parameters.

−−before−clean COMMAND

invoked before the clean command

−−clean−args ARGUMENTS

arguments added to clean command generated by build system plugin

−−after−clean COMMAND

invoked after the clean command

−−before−configure COMMAND

invoked before the configure command

−−configure−args ARGUMENTS

arguments added to configure command generated by build system plugin

−−after−configure COMMAND

invoked after the configure command

−−before−build COMMAND

invoked before the build command

−−build−args ARGUMENTS

arguments added to build command generated by build system plugin

−−after−build COMMAND

invoked after the build command

−−before−install COMMAND

invoked before the install command

−−install−args ARGUMENTS

arguments added to install command generated by build system plugin

−−after−install COMMAND

invoked after the install command

−−before−test COMMAND

invoked before the test command

−−test−args ARGUMENTS

arguments added to test command generated by build system plugin

−−after−test COMMAND

invoked after the test command

variables that can be used in ARGUMENTS and COMMAND

{version} will be replaced with current Python version, you can also use {version.major}, {version.minor}, etc.

{interpreter} will be replaced with current interpreter, you can also use {interpreter.include_dir}

{dir} will be replaced with sources directory,

{destdir} will be replaced with destination directory,

{home_dir} will be replaced with temporary HOME directory, where plugins can keep their data (.pybuild/interpreter_version/ by default),

{build_dir} will be replaced with build directory

{install_dir} will be replaced with install directory.

{package} will be replaced with suggested package name, if −−name (or PYBUILD_NAME) is set to foo, this variable will be replaced to python−foo, python3−foo or pypy−foo depending on interpreter which is used in given iteration.

DIRECTORIES

−d DIR, −−dir DIR

set source files directory − base for other relative dirs [by default: current working directory]

−−dest−dir DIR

set destination directory [default: debian/tmp]

−−ext−dest−dir DIR

set destination directory for .so files

−−ext−pattern PATTERN

regular expression for files that should be moved if −−ext−dest−dir is set [default: .so(.[^/]*)?$]

−−install−dir DIR

set installation directory [default: .../dist−packages]

−−name NAME

use this name to guess destination directories (depending on interpreter, "foo" sets debian/python−foo, debian/python3−foo, debian/python3−foo−dbg, etc.)

variables that can be used in DIR

{version} will be replaced with current Python version,

{interpreter} will be replaced with selected interpreter.

LIMITATIONS

−s SYSTEM, −−system SYSTEM

select a build system [default: auto−detection]

−p VERSIONS, −−pyver VERSIONS

build for Python VERSIONS. This option can be used multiple times. Versions can be separated by space character. The default is all Python 3.X supported versions.

−i INTERPRETER, −−interpreter INTERPRETER

change interpreter [default: python{version}]

−−disable ITEMS

disable action, interpreter, version or any mix of them. Note that f.e. python3 and python3−dbg are two different interpreters, −−disable test/python3 doesn't disable python3−dbg's tests.

disable examples

−−disable test/python2.5−dbg − disables tests for python2.5−dbg

−−disable '2.4 2.7' − disables all actions for version 2.4 and 2.7

PYBUILD_DISABLE_python2=1 − disables all actions for Python 2.X

PYBUILD_DISABLE_python3.3=test − disables tests for Python 3.3

PYBUILD_DISABLE=test/python3.3 − same as above

PYBUILD_DISABLE=configure/python3 2.4 pypy − disables configure action for all python3 interpreters, all actions for version 2.4, and all actions for pypy
