I have a package, fugashi, that I am trying to add a
pyproject.toml to. The issue I’m having is that my
setup.py uses a top-level module included in the package, and if a
pyproject.toml is present that file isn’t found.
fugashi/ # main source fugashi_util.py # needed at build time setup.py
Here’s the important part of the trace when it fails, you can see the whole thing here.
Getting requirements to build wheel ... error ... from fugashi_util import check_libmecab ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'fugashi_util'
Is there some way I can specify that the
fugashi_util.py module is necessary at build time?
To clarify why I’m trying to do this: this is a Cython package, and I’ve had Cython in
install_requires because that was the easiest way to get things working. But Cython isn’t really necessary at runtime. I have moved it to
setup_requires, but since that doesn’t actually install it that doesn’t work automatically in my build env. I can install it manually in the build env, but would prefer that to be automatic. Using
pyproject.toml seems to be the right way to do that, but now it’s introduced the problem I outline in this post.
