Web Stack Python Packages

Thanks to Brian, the OpenSolaris Web Stack project IPS repository now has a number of new packages, all of them related to Python. I've published updates to the public repo tonight containing:

  • python-configobj
  • python-simplejson
  • python-paste-deploy
  • python-turbocheetah
  • python-turbojson
  • python-turbokid
  • genshi
  • python-cheetah
  • python-paste

As with all components in the Web Stack project repository, give them a try and if you find them useful (or if you don't find them useful for some reason!) let the project team know your thoughts at webstack-discuss@opensolaris.org. If you have any favorite web tier components or frameworks which you'd like to see available for OpenSolaris let us know that as well!


Comments:

Give a guy a packaged version of software, he is happy for the day. Teach a guy to package software, he will be maintaining it for the rest of his life.

In other words, could Brian write a blog post describing the practical steps he took to package those libraries and frameworks?

The Web Stack page has a summary of how to go about creating these:

Just two things that quickly come to mind :

http://www.djangoproject.org
http://twistedmatrix.com

they are quite useful and have quite a few users

Thanks! Note that Django is already in the Web Stack repository, it's not mentioned in the list above since it was already there prior to the latest update.

I'm sorry for the spam then.
I'm thinking to test the new release soon and I couldn't access pkg.opensolaris.org to verify so I wrote it without further thought.

Twisted is also available in the released opensolaris.org repository as SUNWpython-twisted.
