This is the first of two posts on
cibuildwheel, a fantastic project I
joined after switching to it from my own azure-wheel-helpers, which I’ve
blogged about here before. It is the best wheelbuilding
system available for Python today, and can make something that is normally a
pain to setup and a headache to maintain a breeze (by forcing all the headaches
on us, of course, as maintainers, but it’s better to solve issues centrally!
Obviously we rather like solving these problems. Or we are just crazy, which is
also possible ;) ).
Be sure to checkout
the followup post over new features in 1.8.0 and 1.9.0,
cibuildwheel was recently accepted into the PyPA!
