Isolated python installations for Ubuntu
Extpython is a collection of tools for building installable packages containing various versions of Python. The installations are isolated from the operating system's python such that modules may be added, removed, or upgraded without risk of breaking. The builds are executed in Docker.
./images.sh ./build.sh trusty-3.7.3.sh
The vars file -
trusty-3.7.3.sh above - contains information about what python version will be built. See
src/bionic-3.7.3.sh for an annotated example.
- Python >=3.8 won't build on trusty because Openssl is too old
- Parameter for pre-loaded pip modules
