Creating A Plugin Package

The official Cloudify tool used to create plugin packages is named Wagon. In addition to wheels, plugin packages created by Wagon also contain metadata regarding the plugin such as package name, the distribution the plugin was compiled on (if applicable), plugin package version and more. The plugin’s metadata will be used to determine the compatibility of the plugin with the host it is about to be installed on. Wagon allows creating packages directly from PyPI or using the actual plugin’s source code, for example:

$ wagon create -s cloudify-script-plugin

INFO - Creating archive for cloudify-script-plugin...
INFO - Package name: cloudify-script-plugin
INFO - Package version: 1.3
INFO - Downloading Wheels for cloudify-script-plugin...
INFO - Creating tar.gz archive: ./cloudify_script_plugin-1.3-py27-none-linux_x86_64-none-none.wgn...
INFO - Process complete!
