Preparing a New Release¶
Before the Release¶
- Make sure the version number is set correctly in “pulse2percept/version.py”.
In specific, the
__version__variable should not contain a
- Make sure the Release Notes in “doc/users/release_notes.rst” are up-to-date and complete.
Uploading the Release to PyPI¶
pulse2percept wheels are built using Azure Pipelines to support the following:
- Python 3.5 - 3.7
- Linux: manylinux1, manylinux2010 for i686 and x86_64
- macOS: OS X 10.6 and up
- Windows: Server 2016 with VS 2017 for win-32 and amd64 (closes issue #88)
Until then, the artifacts need to be downloaded from Azure Pipelines.
Before uploading the wheels to PyPI, make sure they work! You don’t have to
try all the wheels, but common problems are with Cython (and OpenMP) on
Windows vs Unix.
You can install a wheel via
pip install <name>.wheel
The following recipe will upload the files to TestPyPI:
cd pulse2percept # Clear out your 'dist' folder. rm -rf dist # Make a source distribution python setup.py sdist # Go and download your wheel files from wherever you put them. e.g. your CI # provider can be configured to store them for you. Put them all into the # 'dist' folder. wget ... # Or for TestPyPI: twine upload --repository-url https://test.pypi.org/legacy/ dist/*
Install the package from TestPyPI and make sure it works. If everything looks good, upload the wheels to the real PyPI:
# Upload using 'twine' (you may need to 'pip install twine') twine upload dist/*
Releasing the code on GitHub¶
- Make a PR from
stable, call it “Release X.Y”. Make sure to squash and merge, as every single commit on the stable branch should be a release.
- Draft a new release on PR and tag it with “vX.Y”. Upload all the wheels you downloaded as artifacts from Azure Pipelines above.
After the release¶
- Bump the version number in “pulse2percept/version.py”, add back the “.0dev”
appendix, and add an entry for the next release in
“doc/users/release_notes.rst”. Then commit to
