Packaging your Python application for Fedora





Many people are preferring writing code in Python language. Be it Python 2 or Python 3 or compatible code to both the versions. I would like to present how you can package your Python code for Fedora.

The contents for my talk will be

  • Introduction to RPM packaging
  • Packaging pros and cons
  • Setting up packaging environment
  • Python 2/3 specific guidelines
  • Enhancing your packaging using additional checks
  • Building your package (Mock/Copr)
  • Testing your package

By attending this talk the audience will understand how a python application or package is maintained in distribution like Fedora. The same knowledge can be applied to maintain an application in the enterprise distributions like CentOS, RHEL. The RPM packaging is what all enterprises do if they want to take the full advantage of the RHEL/CentOS enterprise echo system. Learning Python packaging will help all enterprise developers.


Good if you can read about RPM packaging before this talk.
