[Because every time I start preparing my projects for PyPI “deployment” I get upset.]
setup.py (and relative files such as MANIFEST.in and setup.cfg) is not simple for the first (second, third) time.
This project aims to provide a simple bootstrap for setup.py and other files on common structure (namedly MANIFEST.in, README.rst, LICENSE, requirements.txt and setup.cfg). Again, it’s a simple bootsrap. Take a look at some examples of generated output here
pip install autosetup-py
