You should now prefer wheel instead of egg why ? (https://packaging.python.org/wheel_egg/)

And also, with the new pypi.io, you don’t really need to register your package, just go to the upload step. (https://github.com/pypa/twine/issues/200)


pip install wheel
python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel # building wheel

Register (if needed; not needed for pypi.io)

twine register dist/...


twine upload dist/...<file .whl>
