Before doing any tagging, a pre-packaging is required. Ie, do the packaging at least once, and test them, before tagging the branch.

Tag

  1. git clean -dxf
  2. git reset --hard
  3. Edit kivy/__init__.py, remove the -dev part in __version__
  4. Commit with `git commit -am 'bump to $VERSION'
  5. Tag the release: git tag $VERSION
  6. Edit kivy/__init__.py, and edit __version__ = "$NEXTVERSION-dev"
  7. Commit with git commit -am 'bump to $NEXTVERSION-dev
  8. Push everything: git push --tags origin master

Packaging

Linux (source package)

  1. Create a source package: python setup.py sdist
  2. Upload to Pypi (ONLY AFTER TAGGING): python setup.py sdist upload
  3. Edit the Pypi description for the latest uploaded package, and remove the website link. If you don't, easy_install might not find the Kivy package for the right platform.

Windows

  1. Dowload the portable-deps-win32.zip
  2. Start a kivy.bat shell for Python 2.7
  3. Update dependencies: cython, plyer, kivy-garden, docutils, pygments, requests
  4. Go into kivy
  5. git reset --hard
  6. git clean -dxf
  7. git fetch
  8. git checkout $VERSION
  9. python setup.py build_portable --deps-url file:\\\c:\Users\tito\Desktop\portable-deps-win32.zip
  10. Copy the generated package Kivy-VERSION-py2.7-win32.zip to the Google drive
  11. Update dependencies: cython, plyer, kivy-garden, docutils, pygments, requests
  12. Start a kivy.bat shell for Python 3.3
  13. Go into kivy
  14. git reset --hard
  15. git clean -dxf
  16. git fetch
  17. git checkout $VERSION
  18. python setup.py build_portable --deps-url file:\\\c:\Users\tito\Desktop\portable-deps-win32.zip
  19. Copy the generated package Kivy-VERSION-py3.3-win32.zip to the Google drive
