This script supports publishing Pystache to PyPI.
This docstring contains instructions to Pystache maintainers on how
to release a new version of Pystache.
(1) Prepare the release.
Make sure the code is finalized and merged to master. Bump the version
number in, update the release date in the HISTORY file, etc.
Generate the reStructuredText long_description using--
$ python prep
and be sure this new version is checked in. You must have pandoc installed
to do this step:
It helps to review this auto-generated file on GitHub prior to uploading
because the long description will be sent to PyPI and appear there after
publishing. PyPI attempts to convert this string to HTML before displaying
it on the PyPI project page. If PyPI finds any issues, it will render it
instead as plain-text, which we do not want.
To check in advance that PyPI will accept and parse the reST file as HTML,
you can use the rst2html program installed by the docutils package
( To install docutils:
$ pip install docutils
To check the file, run the following command and confirm that it reports
no warnings:
$ python --long-description | -v --no-raw > out.html
See here for more information:
(2) Push to PyPI. To release a new version of Pystache to PyPI--
create a PyPI user account if you do not already have one. The user account
will need permissions to push to PyPI. A current "Package Index Owner" of
Pystache can grant you those permissions.
When you have permissions, run the following:
python publish
If you get an error like the following--
Upload failed (401): You must be identified to edit package information
then add a file called .pyirc to your home directory with the following
username: <PyPI username>
password: <PyPI password>
as described here, for example:
(3) Tag the release on GitHub. Here are some commands for tagging.
List current tags:
git tag -l -n3
Create an annotated tag:
git tag -a -m "Version 0.5.1" "v0.5.1"
Push a tag to GitHub:
git push --tags defunkt v0.5.1
