Do you want to expand your Python knowledge and want to show it to people? Do you want to create a package? Well this tutorial will show you how using
- Setup Package
- Code Package
- Publish Package
- Updating Package
To setup your package you need to first create a PyPI account and verify it. Then create a blank
Python Repl. Once in the Repl open the
Cmd+Shift+S. Then type
poetry new <name of package> (make sure to replace
<name of package> with what you want to call your package. If the name has underscores:
_ use a
- instead). Once you do that you will notice a folder with the name of your package click on it. You will notice another with the same name click on that. Then click on the Python file. The only thing in it right now is
__version__ = ‘0.1.0’.
Now in the file with
__version__ = ‘0.1.0’, add your code for your package. This can be what ever you would like.
Now that you are finished
Setting Up and
Coding your package you want to publish it. Go back to the shell (
Cmd+Shift+S) and type
cd <name of package> (make sure
<name of package> is replaced with the name of your package). Then type
poetry update to update the dependencies of your package. Next type
poetry build. Finally type
poetry publish. When it asks for credentials put in your
Username from your
PyPI account then the type your
Password (The password wont show up for privacy reasons). Boom, you just published your own Python package.
If you want to change something in your package. You first need to change the
__version__ = ‘0.1.0’ to the next version (Also do it in the
py project.toml file). Then type
cd <name of package> again. Next
poetry update, then
poetry build, and finally
poetry publish (You will have to fill out your credentials again).
