[Discourse.ros.org] [Next Generation ROS] Ament build for python packages with dependencies
Hi all, I am building a python package that depends on a pypi package. I include the name of the pypi package in the "install_requires" list in the setup.py file. If I build the package with "python3 setup.py install" the dependency is built as well and everything runs well. If instead I build with "ament build" then the package builds without errors but the dependency is not actually included. I guess I had assumed that ament build essentially did a "python3 setup.py install" under the hood. But would somehow manage to put those dependencies in the site-packages in the install folder as well. I am on beta 3. Thanks for all you do!
