You're reading an old version of this documentation. For up-to-date information, please have a look at v0.6.


A few ideas how to develop the project further, currently a list as a reminder for the main developers themselves, in no particular order, though with a tendency to list more important aspects first:

For version 0.5

  • Update command (e.g., for configuration,

    • Configuration: useful when newer versions of pymetacode change the structure of the configuration file.

  • CITATION.cff template?

    • Would possibly need much more information in .package_config.yaml

  • Using black for code style?

    • If used, should go into git hook (pre-commit?)

  • Command for copying templates to user-specific/site-wide directory

  • Makefile for tests, prospector, documentation, …

For later versions

  • Templates specific to packages (e.g., ASpecD)

    • Requires mechanism to detect which package we are called from

  • More configuration options

  • Commands for releasing a package to PyPI


A list of todos, extracted from the code and documentation itself, and only meant as convenience for the main developers. Ideally, this list will be empty at some point.
