Welcome to an_example_pypi_project's documentation!

Introduction: This Package is a Tutorial

This is just a demonstration vehicle used to take you through the process -- start to finish -- of creating a Python project that can be:

  1. Uploaded to
  2. Distributed from


  1. Documented on

the Python Package Index (aka pypi or the cheeseshop) at http://pypi.python.org/pypi. This project uses setuptools, sphinx, and the Sphinx-PyPI-upload (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Sphinx-PyPI-upload/0.2.1).

This demonstration is not meant to be complete nor authoritative. It's just a recording of the steps I took to get some projects onto pypi and hopefully it might save someone some time from googling around. To be sure, this is simply just one way to make a project, document it, and get it on pypi.

NOTE: This was originally given as a talk to the Minnesota Python Users Group http://groups.google.com/group/pymntos/ and was developed for a spoken presentation format.
