[Python] A simple example of Python Egg

The following content is based on this article:
http://www.mxm.dk/2008/02/python-eggs-simple-introduction.html

hello/
  _wrapper.so
  hello.py ==>
    def helloworld():
        print 'Hello World'


1. First, prepare your setup.py ==>
from distutils.core import setup # Distutils

setup(name='hello',
    version='1.0',
    packages=['hello',],
    package_data={
        'hello': ['*.so'],
    }
)

2. Run python setup.py sdist

3. Change a line in your setup.py ==>
#from distutils.core import setup # Distutils
from setuptools import setup, find_packages # Egg

setup(name='hello',
    version='1.0',
    packages=['hello',],
    package_data={
        'hello': ['*.so'],
    }
)

4. Run  python setup.py bdist_egg

5. Then you get a new file in your dist directory:
dist/
hello-1.0-py2.4.egg

My example files and output package are here:


6. To install the egg file
> sudo easy_install hello-1.0-py2.7.egg
in case if there is an error for easy_install
> sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
