Integrating GitHub with PyPi, Travis-CI, ReadTheDocs, and Code Climate

Integrating GitHub with PyPi, Travis-CI, ReadTheDocs, and Code Climate

After change is pushed into GitHub, Travis is used to build and deploy PyPi package. Generated documentation is readable in PyPi, GitHub, and Read The Docs.


Final results looks like this:

How To Get There

Register and create new repository on GitHub. Register on PyPi and Read The Docs (RTFD). Sign up with GitHub account for Travis-CI and Code Climate.

Selecting Markup Syntax

PyPi requires reStructuredText, RTFD depends on Sphinx which is also using reStructuredText as markup. GitHub also supports reStructuredText, so it’s best to use reStructuredText.

Creating Python Package

First step is to create a python package. Detailed documentation is available here, but in practice it’s sufficient to use some existing, requirements.txt, and README.rst and modify them. For list of available classifiers for check following list. LICENSE file you will get for free when you create new repository on GitHub.

Generating Documentation

Now, when you have your initial README.rst file, it’s time to set up documentation generation. Sphinx tutorial describes whole process in details. You need to run: pip install Sphinx and sphinx-quickstart in your package directory. When you answer some questions, you will get which contains instructions for sphinx/RTFD and Makefile for generating documentation.

You can generate you documentation with make html and see it with chromium-browser _build/html/README.html. Although, it will look completely fine, it will be reported as failed build in RTFD, if you don’t include:

.. toctree::
   :maxdepth: 2

However, if you try to generate documentation in the same way, as it will be generated by PyPi with

python3 --long-description | > pypi-doc.html

You will get error

<stdin>:11: (ERROR/3) Unknown directive type "toctree".

To avoid this, it’s necessary to preprocess README.rst before it’s used as long description in PyPi documentation. I have achieved that by introducing two special tags – PYPI-BEGIN and PYPI-END which mark section which should be omitted for PyPi. Then contains following helper function:

def fix_doc(txt):
	return re.sub(r'\.\. PYPI-BEGIN([\r\n]|.)*?PYPI-END', '', txt, re.DOTALL)

with open('README.rst') as fileR:
    README = fix_doc(


Now, your documentation is updated on RTFD, it’s readable on GitHub and it will also look good on PyPi.
Version, that you have specified in should match version specified in

Deploying to PyPi

It’s great to have automatically generated documentation, but without package itself it’s useless. So, lets create PyPi package. To do that, you can use Travis-CI. They have documentation how to use travis client as well as how to set up travis config to deploy packages on PyPi.

First, you have to install travis client with gem install travis and then you have to create .travis.yml file. You can also use following template.

language: python
- '2.7'
- '3.3'
- '3.4'
- '3.5'
- '3.6'
install: pip install -r requirements.txt
  provider: pypi
  user: user_name
    secure: somelongstring
    tags: true
    branch: master

To make it work, you have to do few more steps. Login to GitHub with travis client with travis login. You have to use your GitHub credentials in this step. Then you have to change user_name to your user name, that you use on PyPi in .travis.yml. Last step is to run command travis encrypt --add deploy.password and type your password for PyPi. This will modify .travis.yml file. Now it will contain some real value for key secure.

If you password contains some special characters, you should check documentation how to escape them properly.

Based on our configuration, deployment will be executed only when new tag is created, so we have to create one with following commands.

git tag 0.1 -m "Initial commit"
git push --tags origin master

It would be also nice if tag would match version used in

Code Climate

Code Climate will analyze your code after each push. Integration with Travis is easy. Generate token and specify it in .travis.yml.

- CODECLIMATE_REPO_TOKEN=yourtoken codeclimate-test-reporter

Congratulations!!! Now, you have your package available on PyPi.

Deploying New Version

To deploy new version you have to change its number in and After that, you can create new tag and push changes into GitHub repository with

git tag 0.2 -m "New version"
git push --tags origin master


Wrong Python Used For Sphinx

I have received this error, when I have on my Ubuntu package python-sphinx which is using Python 2. Solution is to change SPHINXBUILD = python -msphinx to SPHINXBUILD = python3 -msphinx in Makefile.

  • Thus it is a problem-solving programme.
    The curriculum is oriented to studying medicine in the
    community using the community as a teaching
    laboratory and learning environment for studying
    medicine, science and engineering (community-based ).

    The curriculum thus has three pillars: student
    centered, community based, and problem
    solving. The working principle of the COBES
    programme is to create awareness in students
    to formulate hypothesis, collect, analyze and
    interpret data, suggest solutions and to
    evaluate methods thereby ultimately providing
    services to the community.
    It is mandatory for all 500level to actively participate in the program, students are
    divided into groups and sent to various communities accross Kwara state to render
    all kinds of technical services to the community that will benefit the occupants of such community.

    All groups must have atleast one students from
    each of engineering department so as to render technical services to the group with respect to his or her department
    when the need arises. I am a mechanical engineering student assigned
    to Idofian community in Ifelodun local government, Kwara state.
    We have taken our time to identify common problems in the community
    and sat to delibrate on long lasting solutions to each of the problems and wrote
    proposal to the university to seek financial grants in other to execute most of the probems.

    This program lasted for two weeks and the following are what we ‘ve
    been able to acheive in just two weeks;
    (1). Rehabilitation of one and only community bus-stop, this will
    enable passangers to relax and stay under shade while waiting for next available bus.

    (2). Most drainages that poses serious threats to roads and residential buildings has
    been cleared and are properly channeled.

    (3). We are enbarked on massive water purification and replacement of damaged taps.

    (4). Major wells were treated to make it safe for
    domestic consumption and most of the damaged taps were replaced
    with new taps.
    (5). Installation of gate arround electric power transformer.

    We are bent on restoring all the road signs, repainting Zebra crossing, covering
    all uncovered wells in the community and installing new signs as the
    need arises.
    (6). We painted Oludofian palace for free to give it a new look.

    Also, resuscitating major street lights accross the community,
    going to various school for career-talks and giving technical advise to the occupants as regards how to maintain the existing amenities,
    the restored and rehabilitated ones.
    I urge all other students that were posted to other communities to attest to this by uploading pictures of community projects that they were able
    to execute during the program.
    Finally, this is one of many ways in which BETTER BY FAR university is contributing to our society, we take the lead in society and human development oriented projects while others follows.
