Demo for the Cookiecutter Python Library Demo project

Project description

This is a project created with the Cookiecutter Python Library template and ready to be used for creating a new Python library.

Just check the readme and docs, to adapt them to your project, and it is done.

Remember that if you want to create a new project it is better just reusing the Cookiecutter Python Library template, as this will set up the initial project according to a few pieces of data it will ask for.

By default the project comes with the following features:

  • Travis configuration file
  • Customized module to minimize configuration, and using tox for the tests
  • Docs using Sphinx and the Sphinx Docs Theme
  • Prepared to run tests through tox
  • Prepared to run tests on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4
  • Prepared to run tests on pypy and pypy 3
  • Prepared to run tests on Jython
  • Prepared to run coverage tests and integrate with Coveralls
  • Prepared to run tests for the Sphinx documentation


Check the latest docs for the most current version of the documentation.

You can also create the documentation from the source files, kept in the ‘docs’ folder, with the help of Sphinx. For this use the makefile, or the make.bat file, contained on that folder.


The project has been tested in the following versions of the interpreter:

  • Python 2.6
  • Python 2.7
  • Python 3.2
  • Python 3.3
  • Python 3.4
  • Pypy
  • Pypy 3
  • Jython

All other dependencies are indicated on the requirements.txt file. The included makefile can install them with the command:

$ make requirements


The project is offered as a Pypi package, and using pip is the preferred way to install it. For this use the following command;

$ pip install cookiecutter-python-library-demo

If manual installation is required, the project includes a file, along a makefile allowing direct installation of the library, which can be done with the following command:

$ make install


The application has been coded in Python, without using any particular framework.


Any kind of help with the project will be well received, and there are two main ways to give such help:

  • Reporting errors and asking for extensions through the issues management
  • or forking the repository and extending the project

Issues management

Issues are managed at the GitHub project issues tracker, where any Github user may report bugs or ask for new features.

Getting the code

If you wish to fork or modify the code, visit the GitHub project page, where the latest versions are always kept. Check the ‘master’ branch for the latest release, and the ‘develop’ for the current, and stable, development version.


The project has been released under the MIT License.
