Publishing to Pypi or Artifactory

Releasing from Github

When publish_to is set to "pypi" or "artifactory", the on-release-main.yml workflow publishes the code to Pypi or Artifactory respectively whenever a new release is made.

Before you can succesfully publish your project from the release workflow, you need to add some secrets to your github repository so they can be used as environment variables.

Set-up for Pypi

In order to publish to Pypi, the secret PYPI_TOKEN should be set in your repository. In your Github repository, navigate to Settings > Secrets > Actions and press New repository secret. As the name of the secret, set PYPI_TOKEN. Then, in a new tab go to your Pypi Account settings and select Add API token. Copy and paste the token in the Value field for the Github secret in your first tab, and you're all set!

Set-up for Artifactory

In order to release to Artifactory, visit your Artifactory instance and open Quick setup. You should see something like this:


You should add these as secrets to your repository with the names ARTIFACTORY_URL, ARTIFACTORY_USERNAME and ARTIFACTORY_PASSWORD respectively. To do so, in your Github repository, navigate to Settings > Secrets > Actions and create a secret by pressing New repository secret to add the secrets one by one.

Publishing from your local machine

It is also possible to release locally, although it is not recommended. To do so, set the repository secrets listed in the sections above as environment variables on your local machine instead, and run

make build-and-publish
