The library is packaged as a pre-compiled platform wheel, available on PyPi.
It can be installed with :
pip install hermes-python.
Or you can add it to your requirements.txt file.
Building from source¶
If you want to use
hermes-python on platforms that are not supported, you have to manually compile the wheel.
You need to have
cargo installed :
curl https://sh.rustup.rs -sSf
hermes-protocol repository :
git clone email@example.com:snipsco/hermes-protocol.git cd hermes-protocol/platforms/hermes-python
You can then build the wheel :
virtualenv env source env/bin/activate python setup.py bdist_wheel
The built wheels should be in
You can install those with pip :
pip install platforms/hermes-python/dist/<your_wheel>.whl
Advanced wheel building¶
We define a new API for including pre-compiled shared objects when building a platform wheel.
python setup.py bdist_wheel
This command will compile the
hermes-mqtt-ffi Rust extension, copy them to an appropriate location, and include them in the wheel.
We introduce a new command-line argument :
include-extension which is a way to include an already compiled (in previous steps)
hermes-mqtt-ffi extension in the wheel.
Its usage is the following :
include-extension=<default | the/path/to/your/extension.[so|dylib]>
For instance :
python setup.py bdist_wheel --include-extension=default
The default value for
include-extension will look up for pre-compiled extension in the default paths (in
python setup.py bdist_wheel --include-extension=<the/path/to/your/extension.[so|dylib]>
When doing x-compilation, you can also specify the target platform :
python setup.py bdist_wheel --include-extension=<the/path/to/your/extension.[so|dylib]> --plat-name=<the_platform_tag>
