Here we provide a cheat sheet guide for developing a Python package with the packaging tools discussed in this book, such as poetry, cookiecutter, and GitHub Actions. This cheat sheet should be used as a reference for those that know what they're doing and just need a quick look-up resource. If you're a beginner Python packager, it is recommended that you start from the beginning of this book.

{note}
While this cheat sheet specifically relies on [poetry](https://python-poetry.org/) as a Python package manager, builder, and publisher, the general packaging workflow shown is applicable to other packaging tools too.
