Python Dependencies

Introduction to Python Dependencies

Python modules listed in Python Modules have dependencies that are not referenced by other packages in BLFS. These dependencies are listed here. They will not get updated on regular basis, unless a more recent version is needed.

[Important]

Important

In BLFS, we normally build and install Python 3 modules with pip3. Please take care that the pip3 install commands in the book should be run as root unless it's for a Python virtual environment. Running pip3 install as a non-root user may seem to work fine, but it will cause the installed module to be inaccessible by other users.

pip3 install will not reinstall an already installed module by default. For using the pip3 install command to upgrade a module (for example, from meson-0.61.3 to meson-0.62.0), insert --upgrade into the command line. If it's really necessary to downgrade a module or reinstall the same version for some reason, insert --force-reinstall into the command line.

Alabaster-0.7.13

Introduction to Alabaster Module

The Alabaster package is a theme for the sphinx documentation system. Although developed separately, it is the default theme for sphinx.

[Note]

Note

Development versions of BLFS may not build or run some packages properly if LFS or dependencies have been updated since the most recent stable versions of the books.

Package Information

Installation of Alabaster

Build the module:

pip3 wheel -w dist --no-build-isolation --no-deps --no-cache-dir $PWD

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

pip3 install --no-index --find-links=dist --no-cache-dir --no-user alabaster

Command Explanations

-w dist: builds the appropriate "wheel" for this module in the directory dist.

--no-build-isolation: tells pip3 to run the build in the system environment instead of creating a temporary build environment.

--no-deps: prevents pip3 from building wheels for the project's dependencies.

--no-index: ignores the package index (only looking at --find-links URLs instead).

--find-links dist: looks for links to archives such as wheel (.whl) files in the directory dist.

--no-cache-dir: disables the cache to prevent a warning when installing as the root user.

--no-user: Prevent mistakenly running the install command as a non-root user.

--upgrade: Upgrade the package to the newest available version. This option is used with the install command if a version of the package is already installed.

--force-reinstall: Reinstall the package even if it is up-to-date. This option is used with the install command if reinstalling the package or reverting to an earlier version of the package.

--no-deps: Do not install package dependencies. This option may be needed with the --upgrade or --force-reinstall options.

--no-deps: prevents pip3 from building wheels for the project's dependencies.

--no-index: ignores the package index (only looking at --find-links URLs instead).

--find-links dist: looks for links to archives such as wheel (.whl) files in the directory dist.

--no-cache-dir: disables the cache to prevent a warning when installing as the root user.

--no-user: Prevent mistakenly running the install command as a non-root user.

--upgrade: Upgrade the package to the newest available version. This option is used with the install command if a version of the package is already installed.

--force-reinstall: Reinstall the package even if it is up-to-date. This option is used with the install command if reinstalling the package or reverting to an earlier version of the package.

--no-deps: Do not install package dependencies. This option may be needed with the --upgrade or --force-reinstall options.

Snowballstemmer-2.2.0

Introduction to Snowballstemmer Module

The Snowballstemmer package is a small string processing language for creating stemming algorithms for use in Information Retrieval, plus a collection of stemming algorithms implemented using it. Stemming maps different forms of the same word to a common stem — for example, the English stemmer maps connection, connections, connective, connected, and connecting to connect. Running a search for connected would also find documents which only have the other forms.

Urllib3-2.0.2

Introduction to Urllib3 Module

The Urllib3 module is a powerful, user-friendly HTTP client for Python. It brings many critical features that are missing from the Python standard libraries.

[Note]

Note

Development versions of BLFS may not build or run some packages properly if LFS or dependencies have been updated since the most recent stable versions of the books.

Package Information

Urllib3 Dependencies

Required

hatchling-1.12.2

Optional (for tests)

pytest-7.4.4, mock, PySocks, pytest-timeout, python-dateutil, tornado, and trustme

Installation of Urllib3

If you want to run the tests, remove some that may hang:

rm -v test/test_retry.py \
      test/contrib/test_pyopenssl.py \
      test/contrib/test_securetransport.py \
      test/with_dummyserver/test_socketlevel.py

Build the module:

pip3 wheel -w dist --no-build-isolation --no-deps --no-cache-dir $PWD

Now, as the root user:

pip3 install --no-index --find-links=dist --no-cache-dir --no-user urllib3
[Note]

Note

Running the tests may result in the procedure below hanging and are not recommended.

Assuming pytest-7.4.4 is installed, but the other optional dependencies are not, the installation can be tested with the following commands:

python3 -m venv --system-site-packages testenv &&
source testenv/bin/activate                    &&
pip3 install trustme         \
             tornado         \
             python-dateutil \
             mock            \
             pysocks         \

python3 /usr/bin/pytest
deactivate

A few errors are known to occur.
