Requirements and suggested packages

The most basic install of pwman requires Python 2.7.x or Python 3.x with SQLite support. Some users might be interested in working with a network database such as MySQL or Postgreql, in this case the package should suggest to install but not depend on the following components:

Building a man page

Many users of command line programs expect to find a man page for each and every program installed. Some Linux flavours has even made it a policy (for example Debian Policy).

If you would like to format a man page for Pwman3, this program provides a helper method for that:

$ python build_manpage

This will create a man page pwman3.1 in the directory where you issued the command. You can control the output by editing the option output in the file setup.cfg.
