I noticed problems with the Ubuntu release, not to mention the trouble one
would have to go through to make this work on Windows.
As a result the only simple way to get graph-tool working is on OSX with brew.
Which makes it virtually inaccessible for people living in countries with a
GDP that doesn't by everyone a shiny MacBook. Furthermore there is currently
no way to have it onto a production system except for docker. Which to be fair
is my personal concern.
Anaconda or just conda, has been around for a while now. In case you don't
know it, it's a cross platform package manager. Like apt-get but on linux, osx
and windows. It will allow you to even get a compiler inside a virtual
Most of the dependencies are already available on conda, therefore it should
be rather simple to get graph-tool on there as well. As a added bonus, you can
even vendor dependencies (maybe good for boost).
There have been already some efforts by people like Alexey Strokach to
delivery graph-tool on conda. (https://anaconda.org/ostrokach/graph-tool)
It would be great tho, to get some official support. I must admit, I don't
have much experience with releasing packages on conda.
I still think its worth looking into for a couple of reasons:
\- Support for all OS
\- Support for multiple python versions (not only the systems default)
\- single command install
Please let me know what you thing about this idea? I'd be willing to invest
some time into that, but only if it is your interest.
