- Best Practices & Patterns
As developers we all love well-documented, well-tested packages. If we do the same for our code it is easier for others to re-use our hard work, and maybe even contribute. We will take a quick look on how to do this using popular tools and only a small investment of time. With Github and some simple tools, setting up a well-groomed package doesn't have to be difficult.
Every Python open-source developer wants their software to be used. As developers, we trust software that is tested and well-documented. In this talk we'll go through 5 steps for how to do this for your own packages. We will take a quick look on how to do this using popular tools and small investment of time: * Write a setup.py script for a pure Python package * Set up py.test, tox and coverage to test our package with multiple versions of Python * Configure Github to use Travis CI & coveralls.io to automatically test our package every time we commit * Register and publish our package to PyPI * Setup our documentation on ReadTheDocs
