Quickstart

Install the latest Cookiecutter if you haven't installed it yet (this requires Cookiecutter 1.4.0 or higher):

pip install -U cookiecutter

Generate a Python package project:

cookiecutter https://github.com/audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage.git

Then:

  • Create a repo and put it there.
  • Add the repo to your Travis-CI account.
  • Install the dev requirements into a virtualenv. (pip install -r requirements_dev.txt)
  • Register your project with PyPI.
  • Run the Travis CLI command travis encrypt --add deploy.password to encrypt your PyPI password in Travis config and activate automated deployment on PyPI when you push a new tag to master branch.
  • Add the repo to your ReadTheDocs account + turn on the ReadTheDocs service hook.
  • Release your package by pushing a new tag to master.
  • Add a requirements.txt file that specifies the packages you will need for your project and their versions. For more info see the pip docs for requirements files.
  • Activate your project on pyup.io.

For more details, see the cookiecutter-pypackage tutorial.

Fork This / Create Your Own

If you have differences in your preferred setup, I encourage you to fork this to create your own version. Or create your own; it doesn't strictly have to be a fork.

  • Once you have your own version working, add it to the Similar Cookiecutter Templates list above with a brief description.
  • It's up to you whether or not to rename your fork/own version. Do whatever you think sounds good.

I also accept pull requests on this, if they're small, atomic, and if they make my own packaging experience better.
