py36-pyside2 - problem with pyside2-rcc

Reported by: cainesi Owned by: pmetzger (Perry E. Metzger)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.5.4
Keywords: Cc: MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Port: py-pyside2

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))

"pyside2-rcc-3.6" script does not execute correctly.

The script is correctly installed in /opt/local/bin, but when run it does not correctly find the pyside2-rcc script in /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/site-packages/PySide2/, instead it appears to be looking for pyside2-rcc-3.6 in that location.

Example error when pyside2-rcc-3.6 command is run:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/opt/local/bin/pyside2-rcc-3.6", line 11, in <module>
    load_entry_point('PySide2==5.12.3', 'console_scripts', 'pyside2-rcc')()

I might be the owner on this but I'm remarkably ill equipped to debug it. My understanding of what's going on behind the scenes for pyside is minimal.

I think I have figured out the problem.

1) build_scripts/ (around line 200) defines entry points for pyside2-uic, pyside2-rcc, and pyside2-lupdate. I assume the python.versions variable in the portfile causes appropriately renamed versions of those entry points (i.e., appending "-3.6" or whatever) to be put in the Macports bin directory.

2) The entry points for rcc and lupdate are a bit funny--they do not actually point at python files that implement the relevant commands. Instead they point at What that script does is look at sys.argv to figure out what command was invoked, and then tries to run an executable file with the same name in a certain directory. I.e., it relies on the name of the file where the entry point is invoked being the same as the name as the executable that is supposed to be run (seems like a fragile approach...). This is broken by the renaming that happened in item 1 above. (pyside2-uic-py36 does not go through and does not have this problem).

Not sure what the best way to fix this is? I suppose we could just replace pyside2-rcc-py36 and pyside2-lupdate-py36 in bin with links to the relevant executables?
