Help with Windows build of Yapgvb Python extension

Discussion in 'Python' started by Lonnie Princehouse, Jan 11, 2008.

  1. I'm the author of Yapgvb, a Python binding for Graphviz. Yapgvb
    enjoys modest success, but for some time it has been in dire need of a
    Python 2.5 build for Windows. I'm posting this message in the hopes of
    finding someone who is interested in making this build.

    This is a relatively quick task for someone who is comfortable with
    building C extensions and has an operational Windows build environment
    for Python 2.5 (which I don't). Alternately, it's a great way to
    learn about these things, and to get involved with a small open source
    project.

    Technologies used:
    graphviz
    distutils
    boost.python
    boost.graph

    See: http://yapgvb.sourceforge.net

    What do you need exactly? One of those executables created using bdist
    or are you going for the msi?

    I usually attempt to create these things doing

    python setup.py bdist_wininst

    ....for executable installers.

    If you can provide a valid setup.py, I can probably create the exe/
    msi.

    Yes, a bdist_wininst installer is what I had in mind. MSI would be
    fine, too --- whichever is easier.

    If anyone wants to have a look, there's a README file that details
    what I did to build yapgvb for Python 2.4.

    The source is available from anonymous subversion:

    svn co https://yapgvb.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/yapgvb yapgvb

    and is also web-browseable, http://yapgvb.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/yapgvb/
