  • Underappreciated Challenges with Python Packaging
    10 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 3 Jan 2023
    If it's pure Python, the only packaging file you need is `pyproject.toml`. You can fill that file with packaging metadata per PEP 518 and PEP 621, including using modern build tooling like flit[1] for the build backend and build[2] for the frontend.

    With that, you entire package build (for all distribution types) should be reducible to `python -m build`. Here's an example of a full project doing everything with just `pyproject.toml`[3] (FD: my project).

  • Easy Packing and Publishing to PyPi with Flit, pytest, and Circleci
    2 projects | /r/Python | 22 Sep 2022
    I published a very simple project flit_pytest_circleci_template that uses: * [flit](https://github.com/pypa/flit) to build a package. * pytest to test it * circleci to run the above and publish the package to pypi whenever a source file is committed. This is the hard part IMO as I do not know circleci well (and didn't know it at all when I started this project).

    I hadn't heard of flit, it does seem like it's not brand new on the scene, however it is primarily a single contributor:

    With a title like this, I'd be expecting to see an article describing the latest tools and recommendations from the PyPA.
