A scaffolding tool for python packages
A very simple scaffold for constructing python packages
- run pip install python-git-package
This package can be used for scaffolding new packages. The command pgp init creates a new package in the current folder. The command pgp release creates a new release. The command pgp doc builds the docs using sphinx.
The package layout is as follows:
mypackage |-- .git |-- doc | |--source | |-- _static | |-- _templates | |-- conf.py | |-- index.rst | |-- mypackage.rst | |-- examples |-- mypackage | |-- __init__.py | |-- __version__.py | |-- mypackage.py | |-- tests | |-- all.py | |-- test_mypackage.py | |-- .gitignore |-- LICENSE |-- MANIFEST.in |-- README.rst |-- setup.py
All files are populated with basic content so the notorious task of manually creating setup.py```or ``manifest.in is taken out of the users task.
Furthermore, the init command initializes a git repository with two branches, master and dev in the package folder. The master branch is intended for published releases only. It should allwats point to the latest release. The dev branch is used for develloping the package. To ease the process of creating a new release
