Is there a way to set the .toml file up so you will have the dependencies installed in a certain order with Poetry?
Imagine I have the following .toml:
[tool.poetry.dependencies] wxPython = "4.1.1" python = "^3.9" pandas = "^1.4.2" Faker = "^13.13.0" pymarc = "^4.2.0"
How can I make sure wxPython always is installed first?
Poetry already takes care of this for you. It will install
wxPython in your example before any other packages that declare a dependency on it.
There is no way to tell Poetry to install packages in a certain order. The reason for this is, because it is not needed.
If the package provide a
wheel the content is just extracted to the appropriate target folder.
If the package only provides an
sdist and therefor a
wheel needs to be build, this happens an a fresh isolated environment. Thus, the build process does not have access to any previously installed package.
If the build process fail, due to a missing dependency in the build environment, the package maintainers miss to declare those build-dependencies according to PEP-518. Once this is fixed, those dependencies are installed in the isolated build environment during the build process.
