pep517 package on PyPI has been renamed to
Along with this rename, the functionality that had equivalents in
build has been removed from this package. And, as the name suggests, the project is now meant to provide a shared implementation of calling code for pyproject.toml-based build backend hooks.
For those curious about the specifics around the rename:
- The GitHub repository has been renamed. Going to the old repository will redirect users to the new repository name automatically.
- The documentation has been revamped as well [docs]. The
pep517documentation is still available at the same location as before, with an extra pointer to the replacement projects.
- The source code for the
pep517project is available on the
legacybranch of the repository.
Thanks to @pradyunsg for doing lots of the work around this rename - including writing this announcement.
