Setup New Python Project with pyscaffold
This guide shows you how to setup a new Python project. This package can then be uploaded to PyPI to make it available to everyone.
The examples used in this guide were run and tested on Ubuntu 14.04 with Python 3.4.0. If you're using a different platform you may have to tweak the instructions accordingly.
This guide was possible thanks to How to Setup a new Python Project.
[user@host ~/sandbox]$ sudo aptitude install python3.4-dev git build-essential curl
Make sure to configure git, including but not limited to, user.name and user.email global settings.
The first thing you'll do is create a virtualenv and activate it.
There's a bug in Ubuntu (and Debian) pyvenv fails due to mising ensurepip module. A workaround is to create a venv without pip and then install it in the venv later.
[user@host ~/sandbox]$ pyvenv-3.4 --without-pip virtenv [user@host ~/sandbox]$ source virtenv/bin/activate
Now the workaround of installing pip. Hopefully this bug will be fixed soon.
(virtenv)[user@host ~/sandbox]$ curl -O https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py (virtenv)[user@host ~/sandbox]$ python get-pip.py
Setup New Python Project
Install the versioneer package as it makes it easier to manage the version numbers of your project when used with git.
(virtenv)[user@host ~/sandbox]$ pip install versioneer
Install the pyscaffold package as it makes it easier to setup a new Python project. It creates the necessary directories and files, even getting git in action to initialize a repository.
(virtenv)[user@host ~/sandbox]$ pip install pyscaffold (virtenv)[user@host ~/sandbox]$ putup -l 'mit' datod
Edit setup.py and provide the customizable information in it.
You're on your way ...
