Building Manylinux-Based Wheels

Building portable manylinux wheels which come with can be done with Docker or Podman.

If you want to build your own wheels, build container image first:

$ cd deltachat-core-rust # cd to deltachat-core-rust working tree
$ docker build -t deltachat/coredeps scripts/coredeps

This will use the scripts/coredeps/Dockerfile to build container image called deltachat/coredeps. You can afterwards find it with:

$ docker images

This docker image can be used to run tests and build Python wheels for all interpreters:

$ docker run -e CHATMAIL_DOMAIN \
   --rm -it -v $(pwd):/mnt -w /mnt \
   deltachat/coredeps scripts/
