See my new posts on cibuildwheel!
This is the third post in a series about Azure DevOps. This one is about making Python wheels. If you want to play nice with Python users, or you have a complex build, this will make your package far more accessible to users. They are faster to install and to use and more secure. We will quickly cover making universal wheels, then we will move on to fully compiled binaries, including C++14, manylinux2010, and other hot topics. This series was developed to update the testing and releasing of Python packages for Scikit-HEP. The results of this tutorial can be seen in the boost-histogram repository, under the
