Set up a minimal, yet comfortable structure for a Python project
Set up a minimal, yet comfortable structure for a Python project.
- Create a standard Python project directory structure
- Get help creating your setup.py file, or choose to write it yourself by passing the --snap command
- Clear your project of messy build files (build/dist/egg/pyc) with the --wash command
- Generate a distribute_setup.py file to use a setup.py file with distribute
- Use a tree-style menu to set your PyPI classifiers in your setup.py file
Create a new project like so:
$ pythong mynewproject
Or, for a quicker setup…
$ pythong --snap
Including the project name in the command is optional.
You can wash your pythong of messy build files:
$ pythong --wash
Pythong will help you add classifiers to your setup.py during project creation, or after the fact with the label command:
$ pythong --label
Files and directories can be added to the manifest file with pin:
$ pythong --pin [FILE_OR_DIRECTORY]
A full list of options can be seen with:
$ pythong --help
You can install the latest release of Pythong from PyPI with pip:
$ pip install pythong
You can also get the source from PyPI or GitHub. Contributions are welcome! Yay, software freedom!
