Releasing new package versions



You’ll want a ~/.pypirc with your PyPI test and live credentials:


repository =
username = someuser
password = sometestpassword

repository =
username = someuser
password = somepassword

Publish to testpypi

Python runs a test mode version of the Python Package Index where you can test out publishing updates. This is useful to double check that everything works before publishing to the produciton PyPI, where you can never reuse version numbers.

Register the package:

python register -r

Build and upload (sdist, then upload) in one go:

python sdist upload --sign -r

Publish to PyPI

Tag the version, here using 0.0.1:

git tag v0.0.1
git push --tags

Register the package, if you haven’t already:

python register -r pypi

Build and upload:

python sdist upload -s -r pypi --sign
