basketweaver is a tool for creating your own package index out of a directory full of eggs. You can then point to this index with e.g. zc.buildout or setuptools and thus be independant of PyPI.


Here is a quick example on how to install and use it:

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 13)

Literal block expected; none found.

easy_install basketweaver cd <a/directory/with/eggs/> makeindex *

This will create an index folder with links to all eggs.

You can then make point a webserver to this directory and use this link in your zc.buildout configuration or easy_install command.


This project is hosted at http://code.google.com/p/basket-weaver/


  • added support for bz2 files and cleaned up tar file handling to use open() instead of gzopen().

System Message: WARNING/2 (<string>, line 33)

Bullet list ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.

See http://docs.python.org/library/tarfile.html for more info. [mrtopf]
