Add Wheel package support: Issue #228 #304

merged 1 commit into from Oct 10, 2018


Copy link

This PR adds a functionality to make packages for both tar.gz and whl (Wheel format).
For example:

$ python build
$ ls dist
markdown2-2.3.6-py2.py3-none-any.whl  markdown2-2.3.6.tar.gz

You will need to change to specify both packages when uploading packages to PyPI:

twine upload dist/markdown2-2.3.6-py2.py3-none-any.whl dist/markdown2-2.3.6.tar.gz

Normally doing an sdist upload so i'll have to check into what's needed before I merge this. Thank you

Finally diving into this. Gotta change how the release upload is happening. Question for ya:

I notice python build is now also generating some extra files:


Should these be ignored? Not sure why they're popping up.

You can ignore those files.
Files under *.egg_info/ are intermediate product generated by setuptools.
Adding *.egg_info/ to .gitignore might be useful.
