I created a package which has 2 modes:
- the basic mode with basic functionality only
- extended functionality which adds additional modules and needs extra requirements.
Where "parsing" is the extension and needs "pandas" as requirement.
Then, I want my package to have 2 modes:
pip install mypackage
pip install mypackage[parsing]
I found out I can use
extras_require to install "pandas". Yet, installing the
whl file would install all the 3 modules: core, cyber_analyzer and parsing. I would like to install "parsing" only if the extra flag "parsing" was specified.
Is it possible to do so? How can I achieve it? Should I always install "parsing" and the users shouldn’t use it?
