I need to install a python module called flask-socketio in a linux image I am creating using yocto. However, there is no recipe for this module.

Is there some easy process for taking a python module which can be installed using setuptools, and creating a recipe out of it?

Edit: recipe already exists in mainstream meta-python here as mentioned by @Parthiban

Something like this should do it:


require python-flask-socketio.inc

inherit setuptools3


DESCRIPTION = "Socket.IO integration for Flask applications"
SECTION = "devel/python"
LIC_FILES_CHKSUM = "file://PKG-INFO;beginline=8;endline=8;md5=8227180126797a0148f94f483f3e1489"
PYPI_PACKAGE = "Flask-SocketIO"

SRC_URI[md5sum] = "298965a43f6534e8a5b24d1ba1fc4186"
SRC_URI[sha256sum] = "8d8f9f104db5ddff1b06ba322d8e158881d590144199c993fe26cf53218c7edd"

inherit pypi

note I didn't test it.
