Awesome pyproject.toml Awesome Link Checker GH Action Status


pyproject.toml is a new configuration file defined in PEP 518, expanded in PEP 621 and PEP 660. It is design to store build system requirements, but it can also store any tool configuration for your Python project, possibly replacing the need for setup.cfg or other tool-specific files.

We think pyproject.toml is pretty awesome, so this awesome list contains projects already using it, or discussing its inclusion.

Do you know of any other project not included here? Please submit a PR!
