Project description


Tests Checkers Deployment (PyPI)

codecov Code style: black PyPI version Conda Version Gitter Language grade: Python

"Skeleto<strike>n</strike>r's main goal is to conquer the mysterious fortress of Castle Grayskull, from which He-Man draws his powers. If he succeeds, Skeletor would be able to conquer not only Eternia, but the whole universe."
Adapted from Wikipedia


The Grayskull project was created with the intention to eventually replace the conda skeleton. The main goal of this project is to generate concise recipes for conda-forge.

The current status of grayskull is generating recipes just looking for PyPI, but in the future we will expand that to also support to load recipes and also generate recipes looking for other repositories, such as, CRAN, Conan, etc..


It is possible to install this project using pip:

pip install grayskull

or conda, using the conda-forge channel:

conda install -c conda-forge grayskull

It is also possible to clone this repo and install it using pip:

git clone
cd grayskull
pip install -e .


It is pretty simple to use grayskull. Just call it, pass the repository (just pypi for now) and the package name.

  • Example:
grayskull pypi pytest

After that grayskull will create a folder with the same name as the package and inside of this folder it will generated the recipe (meta.yaml).

  • Example with pytest (grayskull pypi pytest):

Grayskull CLI

Online Grayskull

It is also possible to use Grayskull without any installation. You can go to this website and inform the name and the version (optional) of the package and it will create the recipe for you.
