Experimental svgwrite ebuild

svgwrite is a Python library to create SVG drawings. It is similar to dev-python/pysvg which is already in the tree, but more "pythonic" and better documented. The PyPI site is at .

I have created a dead simple ebuild which works for me, but surley needs improvement. Though it claims to be compatible to Python 3.x, there is a syntax error when "Compilation and optimization of Python modules for CPython 3.2" which I have reported upstream. Apart from that, it works flawlessly for me on Python 2.6.

CC'ing python if is interested
Comment 2 Florian Berger 2011-07-21 12:06:51 UTC
The error emerging the ebuild is

 * Compilation and optimization of Python modules for CPython 3.2 ...
*** Error compiling /usr/lib/python3.2/site-packages/svgwrite/data/ ...
  File "/usr/lib/python3.2/site-packages/svgwrite/data/", line 2538
    except ParseException, err:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
                                                                         [ !! ]

I have just learned from the author that "" is not meant to be compiled by Python 3. So the ebuild should somehow exclude it from compiling, but I do not yet know how to achieve this. Any hints would be welcome.

Reopen if you still want this ebuild in the tree.
