PyScaffold helps you setup a new Python project. It is as easy as:

putup my_project

This will create a new folder called my_project containing a perfect project template with everything you need for some serious coding. After the usual:

python develop

you are all set and ready to go which means in a Python shell you can do the following:

>>> from my_project.skeleton import fib
>>> fib(10)

Type putup -h to learn about more configuration options. PyScaffold assumes that you have Git installed and set up on your PC, meaning at least your name and email are configured. The project template in my_project provides you with a lot of features. PyScaffold 3 is compatible with Python 3.4 and greater. For legacy Python 2.7 support please install PyScaffold 2.5. There is also a video tutorial on how to develop a command-line application with the help of PyScaffold.


This document refers to the version v3.3 of PyScaffold. If you are looking for the latest development version (v4), please check
