dh_pypy - calculates PyPy dependencies, adds maintainer scripts to byte compile

DH_PYPY(1) DH_PYPY(1)

NAME

dh_pypy - calculates PyPy dependencies, adds maintainer scripts to byte compile files, etc.

SYNOPSIS

dh_pypy -p PACKAGE [-V [X.Y][-][A.B]] DIR [-X REGEXPR]


DESCRIPTION

QUICK GUIDE FOR MAINTAINERS

build-depend on pypy and dh-python,
add ${pypy:Depends} to Depends
build module/application using its standard build system,
install files to the standard locations,
add pypy to dh's --with option, or:
call dh_pypy in the binary-* target,



NOTES

dependencies

dh_pypy tries to translate Python dependencies from the requires.txt file to Debian dependencies. In many cases, this works without any additional configuration because dh_pypy comes with a build-in mapping of Python module names to Debian packages that is periodically regenerated from the Debian archive. By default, the version information in the Python dependencies is discarded. If you want dh_pypy to generate more strict dependencies (e.g. to avoid ABI problems), or if the automatic mapping does not work correctly for your package, you have to provide dh_pypy with additional rules for the translation of Python module to Debian package dependencies.
 
For a package pypy-foo that depends on a package pypy-bar, there are two files that may provide such rules:
1.
If the pypy-foo source package ships with a debian/pypy-overrides file, this file is used by dh_pypy during the build of pypy-foo.
2.
If the pypy-bar source package ships with a debian/pypy-bar.pydist file (and uses dh_pypy), this file will be included in the binary package as /usr/share/dh-python/dist/pypy/pypy-bar. During the build of pypy-foo, dh_pypy will then find and use the file.

 
Both files have the same format described in /usr/share/doc/dh-python/README.PyDist. If all you want is to generate versioned dependencies (and assuming that the pypy-bar package provides the pybar Python module), in most cases it will be sufficient to put the line pybar pypy-bar; PEP386 into either of the above files.

private dirs

/usr/share/foo, /usr/share/games/foo, /usr/lib/foo and /usr/lib/games/foo private directories are scanned for Python files by default (where foo is binary package name). If your package is shipping Python files in some other directory, add another dh_pypy call in debian/rules with directory name as an argument - you can use different set of options in this call. If you need to change options for a private directory that is checked by default, invoke dh_pypy with --skip-private option and add another call with a path to this directory and new options.

debug packages

In binary packages which name ends with -dbg, all files in /usr/lib/pypy/dist-packages/ directory that have extensions different than so or h are removed by default. Use --no-dbg-cleaning option to disable this feature.

overriding supported / default PyPy versions

If you want to override system's list of supported PyPy versions or the default one (f.e. to build a package that includes symlinks for older version of PyPy or compile .py files only for given interpreter version), you can do that via DEBPYPY_SUPPORTED and/or DEBPYPY_DEFAULT env. variables.

OPTIONS

--version
show program's version number and exit
-h, --help
show help message and exit
--no-guessing-deps
disable guessing dependencies
--no-dbg-cleaning
do not remove any files from debug packages

 
--no-ext-rename do not add magic tags nor multiarch tuples to extension file names
--no-shebang-rewrite
do not rewrite shebangs
--skip-private
don't check private directories
-v, --verbose
turn verbose mode on

-X REGEXPR, --exclude=REGEXPR
exclude items that match given REGEXPR. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
--compile-all
compile all files from given private directory in postinst/rtupdate not just the ones provided by the package (i.e. do not pass the --package parameter to py3compile/py3clean)
