Publishing Python Packages to PyPI

PyPI is the public hosting service where open-source Python packages live. When you pip install a package, that’s where it fetches it from. In this course, you’ll learn all about the structures of a package and how to upload your own to the PyPI server.

In this video course, you’ll learn about:

  • Why packages and virtual environments exist
  • How to structure a package
  • How to use build systems
  • The contents of the pyproject.toml file
  • How to use the build and twine tools
  • What the Flit and Poetry tools offer

Throughout this course, you’ll work with an example project: a reader package that can be used to read Real Python tutorials in your console.
