Apparently python and curl were compiled without SSL support. I know its possible to install warehouse python with SSL support, but why is it missing in the first place?

It would make things easier for some devs

Python should have SSL enabled now:


Edit: Just checked and yes, curl is indeed built with SSL support already:

SSL support: enabled (OpenSSL)

To be honest I have no clue I just wanted to mention it as it seemed to bug some developers. I will close it if you say it is fixed.

I know its not entirely on topic... but since thp is on top of all the python stuff... is there any chance that the python-requests library can be packaged and included in Sailfish? I'll consider creating a package myself on openrepos if this is not likely, but it is so much more useful than urllib or any of the other http oriented python libraries, and I think it would be a definite plus in the python armoury.

roboro: I'll see what I can do about python-requests, but it's a pure Python library (no C extensions, etc..), so you can just as well ship it with your application normally and add it to the import path. I'd like to keep the amount of modules to a minimum (additional maintenance burden to keep it updated), and especially with Python, it's not really hard to ship pure Python libraries with your application. The story is a bit different for C extension modules.

thp: thanks... I get you. Probably better just to ship with it bundled.

If i believe Thp post, and tweets, this is fixed in Nemo repository and so should be included soon in Sailfish OS. I was hoping this was in last release (1.0.4) but no.

For the moment i suggest to use python2.7
