When you are working on matplotlib, after a checkout from the SVN
repository, which method do you use to compile extensions without
re-building and re-installing everything each time?
For now, I use this method:
- I checkout matplotlib in directory c:\projects\matplotlib.
- I add c:\projects\matplotlib\lib to my PYTHONPATH.
- I use the command "python setup.py build_ext --inplace" each time I
modify a C/C++ file.
- Without anything else, I can use matplotlib in my scripts.
This method builds smoothly my extensions (.pyd files) alongside my
Python files (.py files). But I have no directory
c:\projects\matplotlib\lib\matplotlib\mpl-data, like in a standard
installation. As a workaround, I've created it manually by copying
files from directory fonts and images.
Matplotlib's developers, how do you proceed on your own computer?
Thanks a lot for your answers,
