Provide a distribution without GUI components

Asked by Jens Rühmkorf

Several existing or planned software components rely on the script_api. For these it would be neat to have a distribution (i.e. a subset of the existing distribution) that does not provide the GUI components. Consequently, no QT-requirements would need to be met when installing DataFinder as a server-side component.

This option already exists.
You have just to edit the file setup.cfg and change the option "include_clients" to "0".

Since 2.1.0 the option is "exclude-clients" which can also be passed to setup.py as global flag.
The source distribution have been enhanced a lot so they now providing additional documentation and script examples.
