If you want to write READMEs on your Python pages that display in both GitHub and PyPI, one thing you’ll have to make sure you do is have absolute URLs for your images.

GitHub’s markdown rendering will work out relative files based on your codebase, but since PyPI is just going with the markdown or RST given, you need to be explicit.

You can work out what the absolute URL will be by checking the rendered image URL on your docs, or you can build up the URL yourself:


You can see an example of this in practice at github.com/glasnt/pypi-image-example, and on PyPI at pypi.org/project/glasnt-pypi-image-example/.
