Is it possible to pre-process source code from distutils? I don't want
to do anything too fancy. I just want to put the VERSION from setup.py
(and maybe a date) into the module at sdist or build time (I haven't
decided which of those would be cleaner). Anybody know of a clean way
to do this?
I don't mind writing an arbitrarily complex function to edit files or
whatever. The problem is getting it called at the right time and
knowing what mode setup.py is being called in.
