I would also like to have it renamed to www/httpie, since it is an app instead of a library.
An example is misc/thefuck: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/misc/thefuck/Makefile?revision=458123&view=markup
I'm in favor for this change, I had never approved the flavor change.
Adding Danilo to know what was the reason to do that in the past (PR 213728) and if it's now superseded.
Besides simplifying the name, what will be improved here?
$ pkg install httpie VS pkg install py37-httpie
Note that this port is a library to another, and besides that, there are only benefits having flavors, even if it's only an app for end/user.
You'll see this when you have issues between Python versions, like we had with Python 2 and 3.
I would suggest keeping this as it is.
And please, refer to the Python Ports Policy:
Ok, I wasn't aware it was used as a library, too. I'd say we can close this PR, then. Any objection Guangyuan?
(In reply to Danilo G. Baio from comment #2)
Ah, I just assumed there would be no such dependencies, thanks for pointing it out!
Alex: Thanks! No objection here, closing the PR.
