error: attribute ‘asteval’ missing, at (string):4:38
So my question becomes “How to add a python dependency not (anymore) in the official nixpkgs ?” and I will change the thread title to reflect this.
Further questions that could have answers already in the manual (JFTR again):
Is there something I can do with using overlays here and also, is there an overlay some of you know currently providing asteval packaged ?
In case not, what approbriate steps could I undertake ? Adding the package to the nixpkgs collection ?
Also where can I find out what fetchPypi is supposed to do ? I had some misunderstandings as interpreted one of it’s purposes being to load python packages also those not on nixpkgs in a derivation. Is that the case ?
(thx @FRidh )
One approach I’ll try is to wrap the asteval package sources in a fetchPypi closure and use the resulting derivation in my jrnl derivation then.

jrnl seems to be built though stuck at installing…
Found duplicated packages in closure for dependency ‘setuptools-scm’:
setuptools-scm 3.3.3 (/nix/store/k03sym20l725wghmx73lagq70i78wi84-setuptools_scm-3.3.3/lib/python3.6/site-packages)

Package duplicates found in closure, see above. Usually this happens if two packages depend on different version of the same dependency.

Still missing something…
jrnl is built now but installation fails:
Just removing the setuptools_scm “closure” or should I say derivation from my expression above resulted in a lucky build, only thing there is one error still, but that is something I could live with as I may use jrnl running /nix/store/7m0r7qhy8c9sm34qj596mizf5hlkdhk5-jrnl-2.3/bin/jrnl directly. Ugly but works!
