I had yet another series of ideas for #3036 and started working on
lino.core.plugin.Plugin.get_requirements(), A new admin command
getlino configure and
(the differentiation is useless).
I had to decide how to name the combined command “configure” and “setup”. Both commands (the getlino command and the admin command) should have the same name because they do similar things. But at different levels (in getlino we “setup” or “configure” a production “server” which can run multiple “sites”, with the admin command we “setup” or “configure” the Python environment of a given site).
The name “setup” is suboptimal because it makes us have a file named setup.py
lino.management.commands, and that file name should be reserved for
setup.py. So I finally opted for “configure” rather than
“setup”. Another name candidate was “install” but I that would clash with
“installing Python modules”. You first install the lino application into the
environment of a site, then you “configure” that site (which will potentially
install more Python modules into the environment).
