breezedb 1.1.0 released

2013-12-19 18:01 +0100

breezedb is my little file-based database experiment. It started as a way of storing data (not A LOT of data) by using XML file structure, although this is going to change in future versions of the library. Therefore, release 1.1.x is to be considered as legacy, as it will not be compatible with future versions.

This release includes some major changes:

  • New query parser
  • Operation fixes
  • Minor improvements

As well as some issues, available in the issue tracker.

Source code is available in the Github repository and is installable via that source or PyPI by using:

$ pip install breezedb

or

python setup.py install

Introduction to distutils (I)

2013-11-08 22:02 +0100

Hey there! Have you ever wondered how to build and distribute a python module or library you have written to the public? If you have (if you haven't, that's cool anyway), then this might be interesting for you. Starting with this post, I'll write a tutorial divided in three parts that will hopefully serve as a simple and easy to understand introduction to Python's distutils: from writing the build script to sharing your library with the world.

First of all, please take into account that I will be referring to Python 2.7 in this tutorial, but it may not be that different for Python 3.
