NAME

       check-manifest - Check a Python MANIFEST.in file for completeness

SYNOPSIS

       check-manifest [OPTION...] [SOURCE TREE]

DESCRIPTION

       check-manifest  performs  a check on a MANIFEST.in file from a Python project and verifies
       its completeness.   It  can  also  create  a  MANIFEST.in  file  from  scratch  or  append
       suggestions to it, and the user can also ignore certain patterns if needed.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       --version
              Show version of program.

       -v, --verbose
              More verbose output (default: False).

       -c, --create
              Create a MANIFEST.in if missing (default: False).

       -u, --update
              Append suggestions to MANIFEST.in (implies --create) (default: False).

       -p PYTHON, --python PYTHON
              Use  the  specified  PYTHON  interpreter  when  running  setup.py  sdist  (default:
              sys.executable).

       --ignore PATTERNS
              Ignore files/directories matching PATTERNS,  a  comma-separated  list  of  patterns
              (default: None).

       --ignore-bad-ideas PATTERNS
              Ignore  bad  idea  files/directories  matching  PATTERNS, a comma-separated list of
              patterns (default: []).

CONFIGURATION

       You can tell check-manifest to ignore certain file patterns  by  adding  a  check-manifest
       section to your package's setup.cfg.  Example:

              [check-manifest]
              ignore =
                  .travis.yml

       The following options are recognized:

       ignore
              A  list  of  newline  separated  filename  patterns  that will be ignored by check-
              manifest.  Use this if you want to keep files in your version control  system  that
              shouldn't be included in your source distributions.  The default ignore list is

              PKG-INFO
              *.egg-info
              *.egg-info/*
              setup.cfg
              \.hgtags
              \.hgsigs
              \.hgignore
              \.gitignore
              \.bzrignore
              \.gitattributes
              \.travis.yml
              Jenkinsfile
              *.mo

       ignore-default-rules
              If  set  to true, your ignore patterns will replace the default ignore list instead
              of adding to it.

       ignore-bad-ideas
              A list of newline separated filename  patterns  that  will  be  ignored  by  check-
              manifest's  generated files check.  Use this if you want to keep generated files in
              your version control system, even though it is generally a bad idea.
