I have a graphical package that I would like to distribute as a single .git repository, that actually contains two separate modules.
- On some systems,
Cairo.jlwill work fine, whereas
Gtk.jlmight not (ex: JuliaBox).
- Want to distribute a plotting package with a
Cairolayer for generating the plots themselves, and a
Gtklayer to get an interactive GUI.
InspectDR is organized as follows (-> means “depends on”):
InspectDR.jl -> Cairo.jl + Gtk.jl
But I would like to restructure the InspectDR.jl package such that:
InpsectDR.jl (package) |--InspectDRImage (module) -> Cairo.jl |--InspectDRGtk (module) -> InspectDRImage + Gtk.jl
If I use the old system, I have to add both
Gtk to the
REQUIRE file. But that causes installation issues on systems where Gtk does not work.
If I understand correctly, I would like a user to be able to
] add InspectDR, but only
build InspectDRImage &
using InspectDRImage - without ever referencing the
InspectDRGtk module (which would try to install Gtk on the user’s machine).
…Although maybe the way to do this is to have the user
] add InspectDRImage directly - and have Julia’s package manager know to grab it from the
InpsectDR.jl .git repository.
Can someone point me to a similar package somewhere - or possibly a set of instructions that closely relates to what I am looking for?
I cannot figure out how to do this with the new
