Preparing a release

TODO: How do we update the documentation on github pages?

On master:

  1. Update and check

  2. Increment version number and remove +dev suffix IN BOTH AND httpkom/!

  3. Test manually by using jskom.

  4. Commit, push.

  5. Tag (annotated) with v<version> (example: v0.1) and push the tag:

    git tag -a v0.1 -m "Version 0.1"
    git push origin v0.1
  6. Build PyPI dist: make dist

  7. Push to Test PyPI: twine upload --repository testpypi dist/* and check .

  8. Push to PyPI: twine upload dist/* and check .

  9. Add +dev suffix to version number, commit and push.

  10. Github release: Go to and draft a new release. Select tag and set title to “Version <version>”, and then publish the release.


Install and update release tools with:

pip install --upgrade setuptools wheel pip twine

Twine is used for pushing the built dist to PyPI. The examples in the release process depends on a .pypirc file with config for the pypi and testpypi repositories.

Example of .pypirc:

username = __token__
password = pypi-...

repository =
username = __token__
password = pypi-...
