sage_conf: Configuration module for the SageMath library


This package provides:

  • a single Python module, sage_conf, providing configuration information to the SageMath library at the time of its installation and at its runtime

  • a console script sage-config, for querying the variables of sage_conf from the shell

  • a sourcable shell script sage-env-config, providing additional configuration information in the form of environment variables

This version of the package is generated by the Sage distribution’s configure script. Downstream packagers and advanced developers and users may want to provide their own implementation of the package to support the intended deployment of the SageMath library.
