jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

My PKGBUILD for `python-nbgrader`:

# Maintainer: leuko <leuko_aydos_de>
pkgname=python-nbgrader-git
provides=('python-nbgrader')
conflicts=('python-nbgrader')
pkgver=r2892.3aa5af2a
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="A system for assigning and grading notebooks"
arch=(any)
url="https://github.com/jupyter/nbgrader"
license=(BSD)
depends=(

	python-sqlalchemy
	python-dateutil
	python-traitlets

	jupyter

)
makedepends=("python-setuptools" "git")
source=("git+https://github.com/jupyter/nbgrader")
md5sums=('SKIP')
pkgver() {
        cd "$srcdir/nbgrader"
        printf "r%s.%s" "$(git rev-list --count HEAD)" "$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"
}
build() {
        cd "$srcdir/nbgrader"
	#sed -Ei 's/^(\s*)("jupyter")/\1#\2/' setup.py
	python setup.py build
}
package() {
        cd "$srcdir/nbgrader"
	python setup.py install --prefix=/usr --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1 --skip-build
	install -Dm644 LICENSE "$pkgdir/usr/share/licenses/$pkgname/LICENSE"

Without the `sed` line, the package creation and installation are successful, but I get the following error when I run the program:

$ nbgrader
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'jupyter' distribution was not found and is required by nbgrader

When I remove "jupyter" from `install_requires` array in `setup.py` of `python-nbgrader` then there is no error and everything is fine, but I think this only a workaround.

On Archlinux `jupyter` is a metapackage and does not populate any files in `/usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/jupyter`. I think that could be the reason why I get this error. Is this true?

I am new to `setup_tools`. Is it normal to include metapackages in `install_requires`? Or should every metapackage install at least one file in `site-packages` dir?

PS: Additonally I would be grateful for any styling comments on my PKGBUILD.

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

python-setuptools knows nothing about archlinux packages (meta , split or any other type) .

You have looked at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Py … guidelines ?

The aur python-nbgrader comments inidcate you have the same issue with the stable version .

$ nbgrader
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'jupyter' distribution was not found and is required by nbgrader

Maybe you can find the lines in nbgrader command that trigger that warning and post them ?
That way we'd know how/where nbgrader looks for "the jupyter distribution"

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

Lone_wolf from the autogenerated /usr/bin/nbgrader entrypoint using an also autogenerated /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/nbgrader-0.6.1-py3.9.egg-info/requires.txt both built by python setuptools?

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

I was hoping for some custom logic by nbgrader, but you're right loqs. It's python-setuptools that reports this.

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'jupyter' distribution was not found and is required by nbgrader
$ 

it seems the question now is :
How does python-setuptools determine if jupyter is installed and what archlinux package satisfies that requirement ?

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

It is looking for a PEP 376 compatible module, e.g. from PyPI, e.g. pip-installable, named "jupyter", providing a suitable dist-info installation record in your python site-packages directory.

This is NOT the same as a pacman-installable *.pkg.tar.zst providing a suitable .PKGINFO installation record converted, in your pacman /var/lib/pacman/local directory, into a desc file.

Admittedly https://pypi.org/project/jupyter/ does exist, but it does nothing -- it is a metapackage too. No one would ever bother installing it. Don't depend on it either.

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

According to the comment in AUR [1] `community/jupyter` lacks the `jupyter.dist-info` directory. I have to file a request there.

Thank you for your elaborate feedback!

It's not lacking it, there isn't supposed to be one in a pacman meta-package, I don't see reason to file a request.

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

You were correct in removing jupyter from the install_requires in setup.py,  no change is needed to the jupyter package.

I am confused. According to https://github.com/jupyter/nbgrader/blo … tup.py#L92 other Python packages can depend on Jupyter, or is this usage wrong?

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

nbgrader should likely not do this. Especially since half of the metapackage dependencies are hardcoded into nbgrader's dependencies again.

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

Slightly off topic

makedepends=("python-setuptools" "git")

python-setuptools should be in depends instead of or as well as in makedepends as it is being used at run time for dependency checking e.t.c..

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

nbgrader already lists jupyter_core and jupyter_client as required,

Archlinux packages python-jupyter_client and python-jupyter_core both include folders under usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/ that should satisfy python-setuptools / PEP 376.

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

It’s irrelevant if we believe that nbgrader should do this or not. Nothing prevents it or other python distributions from depending on “jupyter”.

“jupyter” is a regular “distribution” that comes with metadata (check the wheel file), Python has no concept of “meta packages”.

Therefore a package can choose to depend on it (even if that’s probably not the best idea) and community/jupyter should include /usr/lib/python3.x/site-packages/{jupyter.py,jupyter-1.0.0.dist-info/*}

Re: jupyter metapackage in setup.py causes `DistributionNotFound`

The PKGBUILD depends on jupyter so that guarantees jupyter being available,  the checking provide by python setuptools is then not required and removing jupyter from the install_requires in setup.py during prepare() resolves the issue.
