Making a release¶
Making a release is by now straight forward. Creating a «New Release» on GitHub will trigger all the required things. However, there are still a few things to do beforehand and a few things to check afterwards.
Push it to GitHub, create a release tagging it.
Tagging it on GitHub will automatically deploy it to PyPi, which in turn will create a PR for the conda-forge feedstock. The PR will be automatically merged. (Note: if the dependencies change or the minimum Python version or other installation things then the feedstock has to be updated manually!)
After releasing it, check that:
CI automatic and manual bits¶
The following info was from the time when we still manually deployed. Now every push to main triggers a test to Test-PyPI, so things can be verified there. However, these hints my still be useful at some point.
If there were changes to README, check it with:
python setup.py --long-description | rst2html.py --no-raw > index.html
If unsure about something, test it first on testpypi (requires ~/.pypirc):
~/anaconda3/bin/twine upload dist/* -r testpypi
If unsure, test the test-pypi for conda if the skeleton builds:
conda skeleton pypi --pypi-url https://test.pypi.io/pypi/ emg3d
If it fails, you might have to install
sudo apt install python3-setuptools
