We are excited to announce that the first Release Candidate for PyScaffold v4 has launched and is now available in PyPI. We invite everyone in the Python community to install it via pip install pyscaffold==4.0rc1 and share your thoughts.

This new release candidate has a ton of new features including our new interactive mode (-i in the CLI) and the new experimental configuration that allow you to save your favourite options to be automatically applied to all projects.

It does not matter if you are new to Python or an experienced developer, if you have an existing project or are starting a new one, the newest version of PyScaffold should make it even easier to get your Python package ready and published.

What is PyScaffold?

PyScaffold is the tool of choice for bootstrapping high quality Python packages, ready to be shared on PyPI and installable via pip. It is easy to use and encourages the adoption of the best tools and practices of the Python ecosystem, helping you and your team to stay sane, happy and productive. The best part? It is stable and has been used by thousands of developers for over half a decade!

Why PyScaffold?

PyScaffold was created in 2014 and therefore is stable and battle tested, but yet constantly evolving to support its users needs and the latest standards of the Python community.

With PyScaffold you can jump start your Python development with an incredibly smart project template, perfected throughout years of serious usage, that promotes the best practices in the Python ecosystem and ships with ready-to-use configuration for all the tools needed by the vast majority of Python developers.

If you are still not convinced have a look on these other reasons and the extensive list of PyScaffold's features. And if you are curious, checkout our demo project, or install PyScaffold and type putup -h to get started.
