Star it if you like it!

  • irelease is Python package that will help to release your python package on both github and pypi. A new release of your package is created by taking the following steps:
  1. Extract the version from the file

  2. Remove old build directories such as dist, build and x.egg-info

  3. Git pull (to make sure all is up to date)

  4. Get latest release version at github

  5. Check if the local (current) version is newer then the latest github release.

     a. Make new wheel, build and install package
     b. Set tag to newest version
     c. Push to git
     d. Upload to pypi (credentials for pypi required)



  • Install irelease from PyPI (recommended). irelease is compatible with Python 3.6+ and runs on Linux, MacOS X and Windows.
  • It is distributed under the MIT license.

Quick Start

pip install irelease

Alternatively, install irelease from the GitHub source:

git clone
cd irelease
python install

Run irelease

Go to the directory where the package is you want to release and simply run release:

$ pyrelease

The following arguments are availble:

# Github name
pyrelease -u <githubname>

# Package name your want to release
pyrelease -p <packagename>

# Removing local builds:
# 1: Yes
# 0: No
pyrelease -c 1

# Verbosity messages:
# 0: No messages
# 1: Error only
# 2: Warnings and above
# 3: Regular messages and above
# 4: Debug and above
# 5: Trace and above
pyrelease -v 5

# Twine path for to irelease at pypi. This is automatically determined if standard installation is performed.
pyrelease -t 'C://Users/erdogant/AppData/Roaming/Python/Python36/Scripts/twine.exe'


Your package to-be-published must have the correct structure. At least these files and folders are expected:

    ├── <package_dir>/
    │   ├──
    │   ├──
    │   ├── ...
    ├── .gitignore
    ├── LICENSE
    ├── requirements.txt
    └── ...

Example: releasing bnlearn package.

    ├── bnlearn/
    │   ├──
    │   ├──
    ├── .gitignore
    ├── LICENSE
    ├── requirements.txt

Go to your destination dir and run release:

$ pyrelease

release with your specified arguments

# Package can be specified:
$ bnlearn>pyrelease -p bnlearn

# Username can be specified:
$ bnlearn>pyrelease -u erdogant

# Cleaning of previous builds in directory can be disabled
$ bnlearn>pyrelease -c 0

Do not forget to enter some release information on github and mark your release number:
