Downloading Existing Builds

$ bork download gh:duckinator/emanate # download latest .pyz for Emanate
$ bork download gh:duckinator/emanate --directory bin/ # put files in ./bin
$ bork download gh:ppb/pursuedpybear --files '*.tar.gz' # download latest .tar.gz file

Building and Releasing

Assuming a project is PEP 517 compliant, you can just do:

$ bork clean # Remove anything in build/, dist/, *.egg-info/
$ bork build # Build the project
$ bork release # Release to PyPI

ZipApp Support

If you want to build a ZipApp, add this to your setup.cfg:

zipapp_main = <entrypoint>

Where <entrypoint> is of the form "module.submodule:function", and will likely be equivalent to the primary console_script entrypoint elsewhere in setup.cfg.
