almost-empty 0.3.2-beta

Create AlmostEmpty packages

Latest Version: 0.4.0-beta

AlmostEmpty is a command-line utility for creating barebones projects in a variety of languages.

An AlmostEmpty project is one which follows community-accepted structure guidelines, makes it easy for new contributors to join in, and sets you up with a pre-commit lint hook, TravisCI, Coveralls

AlmostEmpty currently supports Python, Django, Flask, and TeX projects.


AlmostEmpty is now available from PyPI! You can install the latest beta with:

pip install almost-empty –pre

Or you can build AlmostEmpty from source by cloning this repo and running:

python install

Some Mac OS X users have reported difficulty in installing AlmostEmpty. The solution, it seems, is to tell pip to install argparse from non-standard sources. So, call:

sudo pip install argparse –allow-external argparse –upgrade

and then run either of the installation options again.


AlmostEmpty projects can be created by running:

almost-empty <language> -n <project name>

Where language is the (supported) language of your choice. Each project can be created either with or without a GitHub repository attached; you can chose to skip adding the repo right away, though you’ll miss out on a few great features (Travis and Coveralls integration, lint hooks…).
