devpi: github-style pypi index server and packaging meta tool.

Project description

devpi is a meta package installing two other packages:

  • devpi-server: for serving a consistent caching index as well as local github-style overlay indexes.

  • devpi-client: command line tool with sub commands for creating users, using indexes, uploading to and installing from indexes, as well as a “test” command for invoking tox.

  • fixed issue9: caching of packages where upstream provides no last-modified header now works.

  • fixed issue8: only http/https archives are allowed and other schemes (such as ftp) are silently skipped

  • added support for REST DELETE methods of projects and versions on an index

  • added “argcomplete” support for tab completion on options (thanks to Anthon van der Neut)


  • new “devpi list” command to show projects of the in-use index or all release files of a project with “devpi list PROJECTNAME”.

  • new “devpi remove” command to remove releases from the current index, including any contained release files

  • added “argcomplete” support for tab completion on options (thanks to Anthon van der Neut)

0.9.2 (compared to 0.9.1)


  • fix /USER/INDEXNAME root views to contain only latest in-stage packages

  • make +api calls return bases so that “devpi use” can show them


  • introduce “devpi upload –fromdir” for uploading archives in bulk mode, thanks to Anthon van der Neut for helping with this! (resolved issue5)

  • improve automatic server handling via “devpi use”

  • for “devpi server” you now need to specify “–log” to see log lines

  • make “devpi use” also show base indexes by default

  • fix issue4: auto-server data stored in non-dot dir

0.9.1 (compared to 0.9.0)


  • return 404 for submits to root/pypi

  • properly sorted release file links on stage indexes

  • “push” method on indexes for transfering release files to another pypi index

  • properly handle urls from indexes with ~ and other special chars

  • fix root/pypi and root/dev page serving in various cases


  • refined “python” calls from devpi upload with proper __file__ attributes. Thanks Andi Albrecht.

  • implemented new “devpi push” command for pushing out releases

  • improved error handling for devpi upload

  • fix logoff if not logged in
