This week, I focused mostly on bug fixes and improving my PyPI-pytest automation script while also working on adding more standalone tests.

  1. I created a pull request https://github.com/Nuitka/Nuitka/pull/483 to add support for py_modules compilation support in Nuitka. The pull request turned out very well, adding support for not only py_modules compilation but also the combination of package and module. In addition, a new distutil example was also added to showcase the compilation of package and module

  2. In the process of the above pull request, I discovered a regression in Nuitka and https://github.com/Nuitka/Nuitka/pull/487 was created as a hotfix.

  3. In addition, Issue https://github.com/Nuitka/Nuitka/issues/479 is fixed by #483 and is now closed

  4. I continued to improve my PyPI-pytest automated testing script, including functional improvements, minor speed improvements, readability, and documentation improvements. My work could be found at https://github.com/Nuitka/Nuitka/pull/495.

  5. More standalone tests were also added to my pull request at https://github.com/Nuitka/Nuitka/pull/484. This is a side goal and is less important

 

I am very proud of the work I have done this week. The goal for this final week is to finish up pull request #495, and I plan on finishing #484 after GSoC ends. I also discussed with my mentor and plan on working for Nuitka long term, even after GSoC :).
