Ubuntu – How to define multiline long_description in quickly’s setup.py


When I try using triple quotes python-mkdebian crashes loudly with apport appearing after quickly package [--extras] and when I just make multiline string in single quotes the latter stops silently.

You can use the + operator to join strings. Here's an extract of how I do it in the setup.py file of my app:

long_description="Qreator enables you to easily create your " +
                 "own QR codes to encode different types of information " +
                 "in an efficient, compact and cool way.",
