Simplifies Python application rollout by providing its basic structure.

Project description


Simplifies Python application rollout by providing its basic structure.

  • Make a skeleton for your new application with one console command.

  • Automatically create a VCS repository for your application.

  • Automatically check whether the chosen application name is not already in use.

  • Customize new application layouts with skeleton templates.

  • Put some skeleton default settings into a configuration file not to mess with command line switches anymore.

Bundled layout skeletons:

  1. Python module (simple application);

  2. Console application.

  3. Django application.

Make new application skeleton using interactive mode (-i):

makeapp my_new_app /home/librarian/dev/my_new_app_env/ -i -d "My application." --author "The Librarian"

This will create a decent application skeleton (, docs, tests, etc.) and initialize Git repository.

Get some help on command line switches:

makeapp --help

Note: This software can function both as a command line tool and as a Python module.

Put some default settings into a config not to mess with command line switches anymore:

  1. Create .makeapp (dot is required) directory in your HOME directory;

  2. In .makeapp directory create makeapp.conf configuration file with a similar contents:

    author = The Librarian
    author_email = librarian@discworld.wrld
    license = bsd3cl
    url = https://github.discworld.wrld/librarian/{{ app_name }}
