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.

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:
