Python3 project layout generator

Project description

Generates the structure needed for a Python 3 project. Includes helpers for licenses and testing frameworks.


To install this software:

$ pip install lemming


The first time that you run lemming, you should execute the following:

$ lemming config

it’ll write .lemming.yml to your $HOME directory, which you can edit to automatically populate templates with your details for all future runs.

That file looks as follows:

  author: Paul Stevens
    type: MIT

To use lemming to generate a project:

$ lemming <project_name>

This obviously means that you can never name a project config

The default license is the MIT license (rude, but this is the one that I use the most.) The other two choices are:

  • Apache 2.0

  • BSD 2-clause license

To select the APACHE license for your project:

$ lemming testprog --license apache

To select the BSD 2-clause license for your project:

$ lemming testprog --license bsd


Currently supported licenses are:

  • MIT (default)

  • Apache 2.0

  • BSD 2-clause license


Licensed under the MIT License. See LICENSE for details.
