Python is a scripting language as well as a high-level programming language, and is used extensively by Funtoo and Gentoo Linux. [[Portage]], the ports system used by Funtoo and Gentoo Linux, is written in Python (along with bash-based ebuilds.)

'''Funtoo Linux''' is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gentoo_Linux Gentoo Linux], led by [[User:Drobbins|Daniel Robbins]] (the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo) who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. ''Funtoo Linux is optimized for the best possible performance, supporting Intel Core i7, AMD FX Processors, and others.''  [[Subarches|See what we support.]] See [[#Distinctives|Distinctives]], below, for more information about what makes us special.

Funtoo Linux contains many enhancements related to Python, and most of these enhancements are the result of integrating the Progress Overlay into Funtoo Linux. This new functionality allows Portage to do a much, much better job of keeping Python-based packages up-to-date on your system.

With the older <tt>python.eclass</tt> in Gentoo (and that used to be in Funtoo Linux,) no usable accounting information is stored by Portage so that it could "know" what versions of Python various ebuilds were built to use. This created a problem when new versions of Python were installed, as Portage didn't have the ability to automatically update Python-based packages to work with newer versions of Python that were installed.

This created the need for a separate tool, called <tt>python-updater</tt,> which was used to rebuild all Python-related ebuilds so that they properly utilize the currently-installed versions of Python.

== Progress in Funtoo ==

The [[:Help:Funtoo_Editing_Guidelines | How to 'wiki']] will help get you started on wiki editing. Have a look at [[Requested-Documents]] and [[:Category:Needs_Updates | pages that need to be updated.]]
  
The new Progress Overlay that has been integrated into Funtoo Linux goes a very long way towards solving the prior problems that existed when dealing with Python-based packages/ebuilds. The Progress Overlay adds two important things. The first is a new eclass that allows new Python-related ebuilds to be written in a way so that Portage can understand what versions of Python they were built against.
+
See [[:Category:Ebuilds|Ebuilds]] for a list of all ebuild pages, and [[Adding an Ebuild to the Wiki]] for information on how to add one.

By being integrated into Funtoo Linux, Progress Overlay also offers Funtoo Linux users hundreds of updated ebuilds. Hundreds (over four hundred) ebuilds that interact with Python in some way have been enhanced to take advantage of the new Python eclass. These new enhancements allow Portage to do what <tt>python-updater</tt> used to do for you -- keep your system up-to-date and all dependencies satisfied, even in the case where you may upgrade or change Python versions installed on your system.
+
Funtoo Linux is a meta-distribution, which means it is built (fully automatically) with the functionality and optimizations that ''you'' want, not what some distro maintainer thought was best for you. Packages are installed directly from source code, thanks to the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portage_(software) Portage ports system], inspired by the FreeBSD ports system, written in Python and with full advanced package management functionality.  
  
== How To Use It ==
+
''Benefits for desktops'': leaner, optimized, faster system. ''Additional benefits for servers'': enable only what you actually need to reduce attack surface, thus improving security.
  
You don't need to do anything special to take advantage of the new Python functionality from Progress Overlay. It is already integrated into your Portage tree and is working for you behind the scenes to keep Python-related packages working properly.  
+
We use [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software) Git] for all our development, and we also use Git to deliver our ports tree to you.
  
The new Python functionality uses a special configuration variable called <tt>PYTHON_ABIS</tt>. By default, <tt>PYTHON_ABIS</tt> is set to "<tt>2.7 3.2</tt>" in Funtoo Linux profiles. This setting tells Portage that by default, any Python-related ebuilds should be built so that they can be used with both python-2.7 and python-3.2, if the ebuilds are compatible and will run using these versions of Python. If an ebuild doesn't support python-3.2, for example, Portage will still ensure that a python-2.7-compatible version of the package is installed. If an ebuild supports ''both'' versions, then special steps will be taken to install two separate sets of python modules and binaries, in order to ensure full compatibility with either Python interpreter.
+
In contrast to Gentoo Linux, we offer a number of innovations, including our extensive use of git, [[Funtoo 1.0 Profile|our profile system]], [[Package:Boot-Update|boot-update]] boot management tool, our incredibly flexible [[Funtoo Linux Networking|template-based networking scripts]], [[Metro Quick Start Tutorial|Metro]] distribution build system, support of Debian, RHEL and other kernels, [[Creating_Python-related_Ebuilds|enhanced Python support]], Portage mini-manifests, user-centric distribution model, and a large number of community infrastructure improvements.

Funtoo Linux is a Linux-based operating system that is a variant of Gentoo Linux, led by Daniel Robbins (the creator and former Chief Architect of Gentoo) who serves as benevolent dictator for life (BDFL) of the project. Funtoo Linux is optimized for the best possible performance, supporting Intel Core i7, AMD FX Processors, and others. See what we support. See Distinctives, below, for more information about what makes us special.
