pythong

Author: David Gay <oddshocks@riseup.net>

Set up a minimal, yet comfortable structure for a Python project.

Features

  • Create a standard Python project directory structure
  • Get help creating your setup.py file, or choose to write it yourself by passing the --snap command
  • Clear your project of messy build files (build/dist/egg/pyc) with the --wash command
  • Generate a distribute_setup.py file to use a setup.py file with distribute
  • Use a tree-style menu to set your PyPI classifiers in your setup.py file

Example Usage

Create a new project like so:

$ pythong mynewproject

Or, for a quicker setup...

$ pythong --snap

Including the project name in the command is optional.

You can wash your pythong of messy build files:

$ pythong --wash

Pythong will help you add classifiers to your setup.py during project creation, or after the fact with the label command:

$ pythong --label

Files and directories can be added to the manifest file with pin:

$ pythong --pin [FILE_OR_DIRECTORY]

A full list of options can be seen with:

$ pythong --help

Get Pythong

You can install the latest release of Pythong from PyPI with pip:

$ pip install pythong

You can also get the source from PyPI or GitHub. Contributions are welcome! Yay, software freedom!
