Ionel Cristian Mărieș - Less known packaging features and tricks [EuroPython 2015] [20 July 2015] [Bilbao, Euskadi, Spain]
You've been making packages for a while now. Everything works almost fine, however, lots of new features and tools have been developed recently. Some are really obscure. And there's a chance they can save you time and help you avoid packaging-induced-pain. I'm willing to bet couple of beers you haven't seen these features and/or tools before.
This talk is going to show you:
- Patterns and tricks you can use in your setup.py.
- Obscure pip/setuptools/virtualenv/python features you can use to improve your packaging experience (be it as a user of packages or a package author).
- Fledgeling alternative tools.
