pypirc – Fix Breaks Login
(When an upstream bugfix breaks my login)
Getting started on the Python Package Index
Back when I was finally willing to release python code to the wild I did some reading on the web of the simplest methods of getting a project uploaded to PyPI. I found several resources, but one that I clipped and still occasionally refer to was a simple article by Peter Downs on making a project pip installable that is hosted on Github.
This was very simple to follow, so I registered with PyPI (and TestPyPI) using a password generator and created my
.pypirc file. After fleshing out my project and adding the necessary components to the
setup.py file I excitedly tried to register and upload my first project.
