autosign can be installed using pip:

autosign is based on Python 2.7.


Writing valid signature template

A valid signature uses syntax very closely related to that of python comments.

  • A signature should start and end with ‘##’.
  • Every line other than the start and end should start with ‘#’.
  • Blank lines are allowed before and after starting a signature.
  • Line starting with ‘#!’ is allowed before starting a signature.

Examples can be seen in examples directory. All the python files in this package have been signed using ‘examples/template1.txt’.
