Collection of utilities for interacting with PyPI

Project description

Twine is a utility for interacting with PyPI.

Currently it only supports uploading distributions.


  • Verified HTTPS Connections

  • Uploading doesn’t require executing

  • Uploading files that have already been created, allowing testing of distributions before release


$ pip install twine


  1. Create some distributions in the normal way:

$ python sdist bdist_wheel
  1. Upload with twine:

$ twine upload dist/*
