Minimal Python Project

Project description


A minimal python project. Features:

  • Create a binary using Pyinstaller
  • GitHub Actions adds binaries to releases
  • Correctly handle data files

Installation Options

1. Build from source (requires Python 3.8+)

Clone this project locally and then run:

pip install .

Or, create a binary, which creates an executable file at ./dist/py-demo:

make binary

2. Download binary from a release

Head over to the releases page and grab a binary. Or, to programmatically fetch the latest release (say, for MacOS):

assetId=$(curl -s $repoUrl/releases/latest \
    | jq '.assets[] | select(.name | contains("Darwin")).id')
curl -sSL -H "Accept: application/octet-stream" \
    $repoUrl/releases/assets/$assetId -o py-demo
chmod +x py-demo


After installing, run either py-demo (if installed from source) or ./py-demo (if installed as a binary).

py-demo --foo bar

The version of this package is: 0.0.9
The data file says: This is some text
The value of foo is: bar

And it has a --version flag:

py-demo --version
