Description: Spin.js XStatic support - Python 3.x
XStatic is a packaging standard to package external (often 3rd party) static
files as a Python package, so they are easily usable on all operating systems,
with any package management system or even without one.
Many Python projects need to use some specific data files, like javascript,
css, java applets, images, etc. Sometimes these files belong to YOUR project
(then you may want to package them separately, but you could also just put
them into your main package). But in many other cases, those files are
maintained by someone else (like jQuery javascript library or even much bigger
js libraries or applications) and you definitely do not really want to merge
them into your project. So, you want to have static file packages, but you
don’t want to get lots of stuff you do not want. Thus, stuff required by
XStatic file packages (especially the main, toplevel XStatic package) tries to
obey to be a MINIMAL, no-fat thing. XStatic doesn't "sell" any web framework
or other stuff you don't want. Maybe there will be optional XStatic extensions
for all sorts of stuff, but they won't be required if you just want the files.
By having static files in packages, it is also easier to build virtual envs,
support linux/bsd/... distribution package maintainers and even windows
installs using the same mechanism.
XStatic is a Python web development tool for handling required static data
files from external projects, such as CSS, images, and JavaScript. It provides
a lightweight infrastructure to manage them via Python modules that your app
can depend on in a portable, virtualenv-friendly way instead of using embedded
This package provides spin.js support as a Python 3.x module.
