pythonbase is a skeleton for creating Python projects

Project Description

pythonbase provides a skeleton for creating Python projects, complete with Sphinx docs, PyPI integration, etc.

Basic setup

  1. Copy the directory structure and files of Pythonbase to your project.
  2. Make changes to all these files as necessary (e.g., by grep’ing for “pythonbase” and replacing with your project).
  3. Run python develop in your new project to install it on your system
  4. Run python release to release your project to PyPI. Congratulations, your project can now be installed!

(The last step probably requires PyPI registration; fill in details once I get a good test case for a new user).

Docs setup

  1. Navigate to the pythonbase/docs directory
  2. Run sphinx-apidoc -o . -f ../pythonbase; make html
  3. Go up one directory (cd..).
  4. Release docs: python upload_docs --upload-dir=docs/_build/html

CircleCI setup

  1. Log into CircleCI, and build your project.

The Pythonbase docs are located as here
