Deploying Applications

Running pwhash-config compile everytime your application is deployed, is inconvenient and it is not something you can expect non-developers to do. Instead this is something that should happen if your application is deployed be it by installing using python install or pip install your-app. and pip

This can be achieved by using pwhash.packaging.Install, this is an implementation of the command that is invoked when you execute python install (which is also executed by pip). Install automatically compiles all pwhash.json files you have declared as package data and are found within a python package.

In order to use this you have to first make setuptools.setup() use pwhash.packaging.Install, this is done by overriding the default install implementation using the cmdclass keyword argument:

from pwhash.packaging import Install

    cmdclass={"install": Install}

Once you have done that you to make setuptools.setup() include package data, which you can do using the include_package_data keyword argument:


The next step is to teach setuptools.setup() which files are package data, which you can do using a file. You can simply include all pwhash.json files using the following command:

global-include pwhash.json

If you want to be more restrictive take a look at the distutils documentation which describes the format of files in more detail.

Other Deployments

If the above is not a solution in your case, you can roll your own. The pwhash.config module provides the load(), compile() and dump() functions which can be used to compile application configuration. If you feel your solution warrants inclusion into pwhash or if you feel you have a problem that is in need of a solution to warrants inclusion, please create an issue in the tracker.
