I want messages to be compiled (using compile_catalog distutils command from babel) in all these cases:
- create a binary distribution
- create an egg
- running the setup using develop command
However I noted that running python setup.py develop
does not execute the compile_catalog command.
Ah. Okay, so yes, you'd need to subclass develop as well as bdist_egg.
I have subclassed develop command:
class develop(develop): sub_commands = [('compile_catalog', None)] + develop.sub_commands
cmdclass = dict(build=build, develop=develop),
However compile_catalog is not called.
Develop doesn't have or run any subcommands; that's specific to the 'build' command. Any command you subclass, you'll have to investigate the source of to find out what it does and the best place to hook into it.
An easier way, however, might be to define aliases in setup.cfg:
[alias] develop = build_mo develop bdist_egg = build_mo bdist_egg
Thanks, this seems a good solution. I think I will use this.
Note however that the configuration group is "aliases", not "alias".
Ah, yes, sorry.
It is unfortunate that aliases are not executed internally. That is, I would really like to define an alias for the "build" command, and have it expanded when "build" command is called by other commands like "bdist".
Yeah, that could lead to other problems in the current distutils architecture. A redesigned distutils system would hopefully have a better way to accomplish this.
