Automatically create a python package upload it on github, set up continuous integration so you can focus on code.

pip install pipcreate==0.1.1

Creating Python package make simple.

Because you should be focused on the feature of your packages, not on the hosting testing building infrastructure.

  • Choose package name if you have no idea.
  • check that the name is not taken
  • set up github remote
  • hook up travis-ci with Github
  • hook Read the doc with Github
  • hook covertall with Github
  • help build and release
    • refuse to put on PyPi if travis failing

But as example are better:

$ python3 -m pipcreate frobulator
will use target dir /Users/bussonniermatthias/eraseme
    # Will open github at the right page and ask you for a private token at first launch.
Comparing "frobulator" to other existing package name...
    # Genrate Package name if you have no idea
frobulator seem to have a sufficiently specific name
Logged in on GitHub as  Matthias Bussonnier

Clonning github repository locally
Cloning into 'frobulator'...

Checking connectivity... done.
I am now in  /Users/bussonniermatthias/eraseme/frobulator
Travis user: Matthias Bussonnier
syncing Travis with Github, this can take a while...
syncing done
Enabling travis hooks for this repository
Travis hook for this repository are now enabled.
Continuous interation test shoudl be triggerd everytime you push code to github
    # clone, do the first commit
    # re-push and open travis on build page to be sure all is right.

Rely heavily on other packages, TraviPy, pygithub and cookiecutter.

While cookiecutter is nice and allow a lot of flexibility, I think it require too much thinking or is too frightening when you don't have time to loose or is a beginnier.

Pipcreate will make most decision for you allowing you to focus on what you like to.
