Entry Points
============
It is possible to use setuptools' entry points to load commands
directly from python packages. A mach entry point is a function which
returns a list of files or directories containing mach command
providers. e.g.:
.. code-block:: python
def list_providers():
providers = []
here = os.path.abspath(os.path.dirname(__file__))
for p in os.listdir(here):
if p.endswith('.py'):
providers.append(os.path.join(here, p))
return providers
for more information on creating an entry point. To search for entry
point plugins, you can call
:py:meth:`mach.main.Mach.load_commands_from_entry_point`. e.g.:
.. code-block:: python
mach.load_commands_from_entry_point("mach.external.providers")
