Project description


what is this?

example for best practices in python packaging.


pip install -r requirements.txt


to install PyOffice, do:

git clone
cd PyOffice
python install

or, get it straight from pypi:

python -m pip install PyOffice

once installed, python search for pyoffice in site-packages folder, which isdefined in .bash_profile.

export PYTHONPATH=$PYTHONPATH:/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages

you can check python path from terminal:

env | grep PYTHONPATH

verify that install placed source code in the appropriate site-packages folder with:

cd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages

you should see "PyOffice" source code. other libraries (eg sklearn, scipy) reside in this folder too.


>>> from PyOffice import CalculatorProcessor
>>> my_calc = CalculatorProcessor()
>>> my_calc.add(2,3)
# 5

create a pypi package

package script

create, which will be the workhorse of pypi packaging, and then package script by

python sdist # creates dist folder, which stores tarred copy

upload to pypi

assuming youve registered with pypi, do

python register # authenticate
python sdist upload # uploads entire file to pypi

you can view package at

install with pip

youve seen this a million times before:

python -m pip install PyOffice
