What do you mean by "using"? You mean installing them (for which you should never use easy_install anyway, btw), or packaging them? The only limitation regarding packaging them is that you currently need to explicitly list them in your packaging configuration, as find_packages() does not yet support namespace packages.

I previously posted this to python-list as well as reddit:
So far (as pointed out in the reddit link I posted) it seems like maybe I can't use native namespaces in conjunction with setuptools and must instead use pip. Is this correct?
Here is my original message which contains all the details:
I'm trying to understand native namespaces. I'm currently using python 3.5 as packaged in debian 9. I've been following the instructions here:
Those instructions link to the following example:
I presume I'm doing something silly, but I can't get that to work. I've tried creating a virtual environment as:
$ python3 -m venv venv $ source venv/bin/activate
_Note_: The virtual environment is active, but I'm stripping the (venv) off the prompt below to shorten the lines.
And then I've gone into those repo folders and run their setup.py files (e.g. for namespace a):
$ cd sample-namespace-packages/native/pkg_a/ $ python3 setup.py install
Then if I try to run their sample verification file, things fail:
$ cat sample-namespace-packages/verify_packages.py from example_pkg import a from example_pkg import b
print(a.name) print(a.__path__) print(b.name) print(b.__path__) $ python3 sample-namespace-packages/verify_packages.py Traceback (most recent call last): File "sample-namespace-packages/verify_packages.py", line 1, in <module> from example_pkg import a ImportError: No module named 'example_pkg'
Things seem to be installing:
$ ls venv/lib/python3.5/site-packages/ easy-install.pth pkg_resources easy_install.py pkg_resources-0.0.0.dist-info example_pkg_a-1-py3.5.egg __pycache__ example_pkg_b-1-py3.5.egg setuptools pip setuptools-32.3.1.dist-info pip-9.0.1.dist-info
Am I missing something totally obvious here? Does anyone here see what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for any help!
