The Python Package Index (PyPI) is a repository of software for the Python programming language. There are currently 58K+ packages there. There are so many different types of packages, fullfilling different needs. The package pushed on PyPI is very easy to use and help developers to get their stuff done easily.

There are six simple steps to follow to create a setup script that will work with PyPI. Once the script is written, it requires very little maintenance to update the index on each subsequent release. The talk will cover the below things :

  1. Register with PyPI Test Server
  2. Collect metadata
  3. Add metadata to
  4. Check PKG-INFO
  5. Run register command
  6. Upload to Test PyPI to test
  7. Register with PyPI Live Server
  8. Upload to PyPI Live Server
  9. Check the listing on

This talk will also talk about best practices while adding your package to PyPI. In this we’ll talk about why it is important to push your code to Test PyPI first.

Python lets me convert my ideas into real project easily. I work on a lot of projects, participate in hackathons, contribute to other open source projects.

I believe Technology and Computer Science is something that is not just amazing, but also involved in each and every part of our life.
