I'm not getting anything uploaded to pypi


I’m trying out the latest tutorial of nbdev_cards with nb_dev 2, and even after set up the .pipyrc file, it gets nothing uploaded. I don’t get a link in the terminal, neither can see anything uploaded on my pypi.org . This is the latest part of the terminal output:

How can I start debugging this?
thakn you!

You won’t be able to create that pypi project because I already have used that name.

Also, I don’t recommend you push a copy of this project to pypi since that’s unnecessary and confusing for folks using pip!

Thank you, Jeremy!

I suspected that was the reason, so I tried changing the following in settings.ini:

lib_name = nbdev-cards90210

However, the problem persisted with the same error. As per your recommendation, I won’t try pushing it to pypi again, but for the next time:

Which is the variable that defines the package name in pypi?
