I don’t have any public repos I can share, but I just have one directory per package. Each directory has a pyproject.toml. There’s some shared tools in another directory. I don’t use labels to track individual package version (it’s not a requirement for what I’m doing).
Does that answer your question, or are you looking for something else?
Thanks for the quick reply, I guess that feedback should be fine w/o example source. It might prove useful to mention challenges you faced and how you addressed them, like CI/CD testing, partial publishing, changelog management.
I was expecting the need for an extra deep layout in order to make it possible to have a pyproject.toml file for each library (subproject). That means some repetition across repo but I think that with the current dynamic field options, version could be retried from a single place (assuming all repos wout share the same version, as tagging would be a nightmare otherwise).
I want to squeeze ~20 very small libraries which are basically plugins in a single repo but I am not sure yet how to deal with release pipeline. Should I just release all packages at once, even if in fact we updated only one of them? Is there a way to skip publishing a package if its content was not changed since last release? – i was considering looking at the archive but if I use dynamic version, I would at least have one version file that is generated by setuptools-scm, so the archive would change only due to this.
Actually I keep version numbers in Makefiles (one in each directory), and from there I generate pyproject.toml, from a template file in the same directory. I do this because I need access to the version number from non-python code. Basically others steps in the Makefile need the version number, too. Each library has its own version.
I don’t have any CI/CD hooked up in the repo. The Makefile builds the wheel file(s), copies them elsewhere, and that’s where testing happens. Kicking off make is a manual step.
Other than the occasional “make all” at the top level, I just build the wheels manually as files are edited. I don’t try to skip builds if nothing changes. I’ve got about 25 libraries in this repo.
As I said, I don’t do any git tagging. If need be, I can track down versions based on Makefile commits. But in 20 years I’ve never needed to.
