Publishing Python Code

Distributing projects

The Python Package Index (aka "PyPI" -- formerly known as the "Cheese Shop") is the preferred hub for publishing Python packages and modules. Python's standard library supports code uploads to PyPI through its distutils module.

See the PyPI tutorial on this site or the official instructions on Packaging and Distributing Projects published by the Python Packaging Authorities.

Your operating system distribution may have software collections. Searching for Python software can yield numerous packaged libraries and applications. For example:
