Re: [HTCondor-users] virtualenv, pip and htcondor (python)

Hi Tom, hi Brian,

Thanks a lot for your answers. Good to see that I am not the only one trying this :).

As for Tom's solution: that looks neat. The only problem is that the auto-completion possibly won't work in the IDE. Have to try it out.
@Brian: Yes, I was thinking of that, but after the first attempt to compile failed, I did not want to spend more time it for now. Maybe later.
I am also experimenting with conda (http://conda.pydata.org/docs/) for environment setup, but this is something further down the line after the first rush of analyses this year.
If I manage to come up with something that will work on, say, travis-ci.org, I will let you know.

Dear all,

I am currently trying to use the htcondor python bindings in our code, but I could not find a good way to make this possible.

The setup:
The experiment framework sets up a separate python version (2.7) that is newer than the OS default. On top of that our code uses virtualenv (https://github.com/pypa/virtualenv) that allows you to create an isolated python environment.

While the htcondor python bindings are available for the OS python (2.6) they are not for anything above.

So, is it possible to setup htcondor via pip or similar?

A possible solution is to symlink the OS libraries to the virtualenv installation, but there must be a better way than this:
ln -s /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/htcondor.so external/vpython/lib/python2.7/site-packages/htcondor.so
ln -s /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/classad.so external/vpython/lib/python2.7/site-packages/classad.so

Hi Luke,

You can always recompile HTCondor and point it to an alternate python install. Thatâs what I do when I need to use a non-OS python.

However, Iâm stumped on how it could be converted to something I can upload into PyPI. Suggestions?
