In one of my earlier posts I had written about greenkeeper the app that automates dependency updates. I will start with a brief explanation about it, it will send you a pull request(PR) everytime there is a newer version of your depenedencies available, that are specified in package.json. Then you can decide to merge the PR or not. That’s basically what it does. This is just one half of the automation right. You have to manually merge those PR’s.
It was a rainy weekend at my place. I was thinking how to make best use of that time and something crossed my mind. What if a bot, can send birthday wishes to my friends on Facebook ? It would save me of all the regrets I have had in the past. I said to myself challenge accepted.
Projects I’ve worked on in open source world.
Packaging and distributing in python is a bit difficult. PyPI, the python package index is the most common one. I will explain step by step, how to upload your package to PyPI.
Meet greenkeeper, the app that automates dependency updates and notifies you of build failures so you can spend your development time actually making things.
