Getting Started with manati¶
manati is a command line interface (CLI) for managing Python projects.
Create new Python projects with ready-to-go recommended project structure.
Add important files to existing projects
.gitignore, Sphinx documentation, choose a license and more.
Run test suites, analyze test coverage and deploy to PyPi.
Even manati is managed using manati… so meta.
pip install --upgrade manati
Creating a new project¶
manati create -n myproject
creates a complete Python project structure inside the current working directory:
myproject ├── docs │ ├── Makefile │ ├── conf.py │ ├── index.rst │ ├── make.bat │ └── requirements.txt ├── myproject │ ├── __init__.py │ └── main.py ├── LICENSE ├── README.md ├── setup.py ├── .gitignore └── tests └── test_main.py
including sample source,
git repository and a
After creation, the project is already installed in development (editable) mode, so you can start coding right away.
Adding stuff to an existing project¶
Sometimes you have an existing project, but initially you did not choose a license,
.gitignore is missing. You can add those special files with the
manati add command.
Add a license¶
manati add license
where you have the choice between standard license texts like MIT, GPLv3, Apache, …
manati add gitignore
.gitignore contains all usual patterns that should typically be ignored
by git in Python projects.
manati add setup.py
Add a project documentation folder¶
manati add docs
./docs folder and sets up a Sphinx-based documentation in
manati add --help for more information.
Add github actions¶
Add a standard github action which automatically runs build and tests on the github CI/CD systems whenever you push a commit:
manati add github-action
manati run tests
Analyze test coverage¶
manati run coverage
Re-Build docs and show it browser¶
manati run docs
Run PEP8 style analyzer¶
manati run flake8
Deploy your project¶
manati deploy pypi
After that anyone in the world can install your package using pip.
As a prerequisite for deployment, you need an account at PyPi.
To Github, Gitlab, etc.¶
Create an empty repository at the platform of your choice, like github, and deploy your local project repository there, e.g.:
manati deploy repo
After that your local repo is in sync the remote one.
Note for Windows users¶
Depending on your environment settings, you may have to use manati by prepending
python -m or
py -m like in
python -m manati create
