hello, may I ask what the difference is between using
kedro package
to create a whl file to install versus using the conventional method of running
python -m build

Hey @Benjamin Lee very little - it was introduced as convenience function for people who weren’t familiar with packaging
there are also some default assumptions about what is packaged i.e. conf is not included as per the 12 factor app
also note that build was released in 2020 which Kedro pre-dates so things were slightly more complicated when we started this journey
