Python plugin byte compiling

I’ve created a pull request to remove the --no-compile flag from pip install in the python plugin which will mean packages will have .pyc files generated. This should mean python snaps start faster.

… it also means you make the binary snaps architecture specific, and can not use something like:

  - build-on: amd64
    run-on: all

anymore, since you now ship precompiled binaries instead of interpreted code. are you sure about that?

i totally was ! until you replied … :stuck_out_tongue: thanks for correcting me :slight_smile:

Instead of removing it completely, can you make this the default but add an option to the plugin to not compile… we have build-attributes for things that are generic, but I am not sure it fits there, it might.

If you feel creative, propose something or validate the use of build-attributes: [no-compile], no-compile is not to indicative enough for it to be used generically though, unless I am overthinking this.
