python setup.py test or
Travis-CI: Ready for Travis Continuous Integration testing

Sphinx docs: Documentation ready for generation with, for example, Read the Docs
bump2version: Pre-configured version bumping with a single command
- Auto-release to PyPI when you push a new tag to master (optional)
- Command line interface using Click (optional)
Install the latest Cookiecutter if you haven't installed it yet (this requires
Cookiecutter 1.4.0 or higher):
pip install -U cookiecutter
Generate a Python package project:
- Create a repo and put it there.
- Add the repo to your Travis-CI account.
- Install the dev requirements into a virtualenv. (
pip install -r requirements_dev.txt)
Register your project with PyPI.
- Run the Travis CLI command
travis encrypt --add deploy.password to encrypt your PyPI password in Travis config
and activate automated deployment on PyPI when you push a new tag to master branch.
- Add the repo to your Read the Docs account + turn on the Read the Docs service hook.
- Release your package by pushing a new tag to master.
- Add a
requirements.txt file that specifies the packages you will need for
your project and their versions. For more info see the pip docs for requirements files.
- Activate your project on pyup.io.
For more details, see the cookiecutter-pypackage tutorial.

Fork This / Create Your Own
If you have differences in your preferred setup, I encourage you to fork this
to create your own version. Or create your own; it doesn't strictly have to
be a fork.
- Once you have your own version working, add it to the Similar Cookiecutter
Templates list above with a brief description.
- It's up to you whether or not to rename your fork/own version. Do whatever
you think sounds good.

make my own packaging experience better.
