What is the status? Should it be reviewed? Does it need work?
comment:11 followup: ↓ 12 Changed 4 years ago by
I am not happy with pypolymake (which is in beta version)... I am hoping to get something reasonable at sage days 84.
You can already install it in sage through PyPI
$ sage pip install pypolymake
and even the development version with
$ sage pip install git+https://github.com/videlec/pypolymake.git
(it does not work for everybody, including me right now)

Replying to vdelecroix:

I thought so...
BTW, I'll try to create a pexpect interface to polymake, see #22452. I guess having Python bindings and a pexpect interface at the same time (similar to having libsingular and the Singular pexpect interface) would be a good argument for making Polymake a standard package.

To my mind, polymake is too fragile (and too big) to become standard, or even optional.

Is "big" a problem? In what sense is it fragile? Does Polymake change its API very often? Does it have too many serious bugs to be useful? Till now, I didn't have that impression, but perhaps I didn't use Polymake intensely enough.

It does not seem to be that big. However compilation takes a lot of time.

This is a more serious issue: compilation is fragile. You need a working perl environment which are configured differently on different computers. See for example this sagedevel thread.

No polymake is a very neat software! Only installation is delicate.

 Milestone changed from sage7.4 to sage8.0
comment:17 Changed 4 years ago by
Notice: I just updated pypolymake to work with polymake 3.1 (and removed the "beta" branch on github)
comment:18 Changed 11 months ago by
 Milestone changed from sage8.0 to sage9.2
Moving some tickets to 9.2. This is not a promise that I will be working on them.
comment:19 Changed 8 months ago by
 Milestone changed from sage9.2 to sage9.3
comment:20 Changed 8 weeks ago by
 Milestone changed from sage9.3 to sage9.4
Setting new milestone based on a cursory review of ticket status, priority, and last modification date.
Note, the package currently is a "script" package whose
spkginstall
calls "pip". Can't make it a "pip" package at the moment because some environment variables need to be set.Last 10 new commits:
polymake build: disable fink
Merge tag '7.3.beta9' into t/20892/20892
Use withoutfink only on Mac OS X
pypolymake package
Update polymake to 3.0r2
Handle errors. Remove old installation before installing
Run polymake reconfigure
Fixup "arch" flags on Mac OS X. Increase verbosity
Remove pypolymake package for now
Revert "Remove pypolymake package for now"
