Add a ‘setup.py’ to your package to make it compliant with setuptools. This will allow an easy distribution of your package. Since this option requires most basic options, it’s a good proxy to add to a newly created package to avoid multiple ‘manage add opt’ commands.

Requirements for your projects are stored in your config in order to generate two requirements files:
- “requirements.txt” that contains all the requirements to use your package, play the examples, run the tests and compile the documentation.
- “requirements_minimal.txt” that contains the bare minimal requirements to use your package. Think of it as the minimal requirements that will be used on a production server for example.
To help you keep track of your dependencies, you can use the reqs tool provided with this option.
