How to Build Python Packages for Pip

The most powerful feature of Python is its community. Almost every use-case out there has a package built specifically for it.

Need to send mobile/email alerts? pip install knockknock - Build ML apps? pip install streamlit - Bored of your terminal? pip install colorama - It's too easy!

I know this is obvious, but those libraries didn't magically appear. For each package, there is a person, or many persons - that actively developed and deployed that package.

Every single one.

All 300K+ of them.

That is why Python is Python, the level of support is phenomenal - mindblowing.

In this video, we will learn how to build our own packages. And add them to the Python Package Index (PyPI).

Afterward, we will be able to install our packages using pip install!
