Tutorial on setuptools

I'm might just be dumb, but I cannot get the hang of usting setuptools
based on the docs at
http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools. Is there a simple
example available showing how to pack a few modules, a few scripts,
some resources files ( images ) and list a few dependencies ?

I've searched google and the links I found seemed to be dead or not
about setuptools at all, but as I allready mentioned; I might be
loosing my mind over here so ...

Yes, the documentation there is long on verbiage and short on
realistic examples. It is also hard to navigate, being one big page of
mostly-unfamilar concepts.

I suppose it doesn't help that I was never familiar with 'distutils'
before being convinced (in theory) that 'setuptools' was
better. setuptools leverages the existing distutils system and
knowledge -- but conversely, it seems to *depend* on that knowledge.
Is there a simple example available showing how to pack a few
modules, a few scripts, some resources files ( images ) and list a
few dependencies ?
I'm also interested in this.

Can we open up the discussion here about how to improve setuptools which has become the de facto standard for distributing / installing python software. I've been playing around with ruby's gems which seems to be more more mature and usable. From my perspective, the relative immaturity of setuptools and its simultaneous widespread use is a clear python weakness and can make python less easy to absorb than it should be. A few...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
