Supposing that we have a directory with many eggs that compose our
All these eggs might (or might not be) used by applications that we write.
So at the moment we run "python setup.py develop" on all of them.
To avoid to waste too much time, however, the builder does a make-like
operation, checking if "setup.py" was modified.
So since I'm rewriting a new system to build/develop:
- does it make sense to re-run develop when setup.py changes.
And if yes are there other possible conditions which would force me
to re-run it?
- what could be a good way to implement a similar mechanism?
Is there anything already I could use?
I've seen watchdog (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/watchdog) which looks
and might be good to implement a service, but maybe it's overkill...
