Seed is an experiment in making releasing PyPi packages trivially easy. For example, the release command will:
I am not sure if a need for this exists, but my hope is that it will lower the time & effort needed to create and release Python packages.
Installing Seed is easy using pip:
pip install seed
To start releasing packages you are also going to need to register with PyPi. Now place your login details into ~/.pypirc as follows:
[server-login] username:yourusername password:yourpassword
Storing your password in plaintext is clearly not ideal. If anyone knows of a workaround I would love to hear it.
If you need an entirely fresh package then you can do this:
seed create --dry-run # Do a dry run to make sure everything looks right seed create
You can also pass a few options to the create command. See the help for details:
seed help create
If you already have a package you can release it using:
seed release --dry-run # Do a dry run to make sure everything looks right seed release
Again, options are documented here:
seed help release
Notes on releasing: The release process makes a bunch of assumptions about your project. If you created your project using the create command, then you are probably fine, but you may need to do a little hacking otherwise.
