Is there a way in distutils / setuptools to list the available build
commands via porperty or function?
commands usually calls other commands (bdist for instance calls build)
you can get a list of commands with:
$ python setup.py --help-commands
but i don't think you can list the underlying commands. The only
way is to look into the code of each commands.
Specifically, I want to be able to add a configuration and build some
classes only if one of these commands is specified.
what are you trying to do precisely ?
python setup.py build <----- confuguration added
python setup.py sdist bdist_egg <----- confuguration added
you are building two distributions here, one source (.tar.gz) and one binary (.egg)
look into your dist/ folder.
python setup.py sdist <----- confuguration not added
Maybe there's a better way to do it.
