Hello Guix Users!

I read on
https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Invoking-guix-import.html:

"The guix import command is useful for people who would like to add a
package to the distribution with as little work as possible—a legitimate
demand. The command knows of a few repositories from which it can
“import” package metadata. The result is a package definition, or a
template thereof, in the format we know (see Defining Packages)."

I've recently tried this, for example for MyPy:

~~~~
guix import pypi -r mypy
~~~~

This will result in Guile code printed to my terminal. However, I do not
understand how to make use of that code. I do not understand how I can
load it. For example I tried using the -l argument with guix environment:

~~~~
guix import pypi -r mypy > additional_file.scm
guix environment --pure --load=additional_file.scm --ad-hoc python@3.8.2
/home/user/dev/Python/additional_file.scm:2:2: error: package: unbound variable
hint: Did you forget `(use-modules (guix packages))'?
~~~~

So that seems to be the wrong way of trying to make use of it.

Do I need to provide a patch to the project of the Guix package manager
to add this to Guix packages in general and then be able to use it in my
local setup?

I do not find the info, how I can now use MyPy inside an environment or
add it to the available packages on any of the following pages:

-
https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Python-Modules.html#Python-Modules

- https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Invoking-guix-import.html

While https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Submitting-Patches.html
makes me think, that perhaps I need to submit it as patch to be able to
use MyPy.

If so, how would I test, whether guix import did its thing correctly? I
could try running MyPy in an environment, but for that I would have to
somehow make use of what guix import gives me, before submitting a patch.

Also, if I need to submit a patch adding the guix import output
somewhere, is there a guide on how to create such a patch for the Guix
project?

Regards,
Zelphir

Hi zelphir,

You don't need to send a patch, although it would be very welcome. You
should read
https://guix.gnu.org/manual/devel/en/html_node/Defining-Packages.html
where you can learn about package modules and how to import missing
modules that cause the issue you are having. Basically, you need a
header such as

(use-modules (gnu) (guix packages))
etc...

Then, you'll have to make sure your file returns something: guix import
-r will return you a code that defines one or more variables, but
nothing is returned. If you don't do anything, after adding the
required headers, you'll simply see an error about #<undefined>.

Put the name of the package you want to build in its own line at the
very end of the file, like:

python-mypy

this will ensure the value associated with that variable is returned
from the file, and you will be able to load the file with guix
environment -l or guix build -f.

HTH!

Hello Julien!

I think I did not yet reply to your e-mail yet. I put it off to "later"
and now it is much later. Sorry for my late reply and thank you for the
information already provided.

Meanwhile I have come across another case, where I would like to install
a package from PyPI and where I do not know how to proceed:

This time I have a more reproducible scenario using channels as well.

I have a `channels.scm` file:

~~~~
(list (channel
        (name 'guix)
        (url "https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git")
        (commit
          "29a2eb36ff85eb75eeb907aa687fbb655b5f1097")
        (introduction
          (make-channel-introduction
            "9edb3f66fd807b096b48283debdcddccfea34bad"
            (openpgp-fingerprint
              "BBB0 2DDF 2CEA F6A8 0D1D  E643 A2A0 6DF2 A33A 54FA")))))
~~~~

A `manifest.scm` file:

~~~~
(specifications->manifest
 '("python"
   "python-django"))
~~~~

And I have a `django-mptt.scm` file, created using `guix import pypi
--recursive django-mptt` and by adding required imports and expressions
at the bottom for actually returning something, as indicated by comments:

~~~~
;; add module imports

        (uri (pypi-uri "django-mptt" version))
        (sha256
          (base32
            "1a4m32yb85bamfpjrg4r1ywz4x21az44wm5hb12dsz6jbbvkmnyz"))))
    (build-system python-build-system)
    (propagated-inputs
      `(("python-django" ,python-django)
        ("python-django-js-asset"

Then to make an environment I do the following:

~~~~
guix time-machine --channels=channels.scm -- environment --load=django-mptt.scm --manifest=manifest.scm
~~~~

Which results in:

~~~~
... (happily downloading and building stuff here) ...

Now this is the point, where I do not know how to continue. It seems I
am quite close to get it working, just that somewhere I need to put
`python-django`. Perhaps I need to add it to `django-mptt.scm`
somewhere? But how would I specify 2 or more "exports" from that file?

If I try to write a list instead of only a non-compound value at the
bottom of `django-mptt`, as follows:

~~~~
... (more stuff before this as seen above) ...

;; add result expression
'(python-django-mptt python-django)
~~~~

I get the following:

Replying a bit out of order, the error below means it doesn't know what
"python-django" is. 'guix package -A python-django' shows that the
package definition exists in gnu/packages/django.scm

Thank you Efraim, that was the missing bit.

Any idea, why Guix cannot write those imports itself? Doesn't it already
know about them, as dependencies of python-django-mptt, as defined in
the setup.py file
https://github.com/django-mptt/django-mptt/blob/master/setup.py?
