Publish Library in PyPI
Often there is a need for Python developers to upload their work (code) in Python’s huge repository -PyPI. I had run into the same problem. But somehow, after some tweaking I was able to complete this simple but tricky task.
- Create a repository in Github to host the source code.
- Sign up for an account in PyPI — https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=register_form
3. Create a .pypirc config file with the following contents in home directory (~/.pypirc)
4. Change its permission so that only you can read/write it.
chmod 600 ~/.pypirc
5. To publish your code in PyPI, you ill need these three files in the root directory of your project
README.md : Mark down readme file.
LICENSE.txt : Describe your license.
description-file = README.md
from distutils.core import setup
keywords = ['tag1', 'tag2'],
classifiers = ,
6. Commit the recent files and create a TAG. The tag will create a direct download link of your repository with the version. e.g. https://github.com/author/repo/tarball/1.0
git add -A
git commit -m “Project now compatible for deployment in PyPI”
git tag 1.0 -m “Add tag for version 1.0”
git push origin master
git push — tags origin master
7. Final Step : Deploy in PyPI
python setup.py register -r pypi
python setup.py sdist upload -r pypi
You should receive a response something similar to this
Response : 200 OK
Congrats, you have published your code in PyPI. It can be installed by pip
pip install package_name
