How to install nestegg
- Download and install ActivePython
- Open Command Prompt
pypm install nestegg
On-demand, lightweight, package building pypi mirror
Still in early stages, though has enough features for me to use it
- Pypi like repository: For software you author or python libraries you modify but only publish internally
- Pypi Mirror: Mirrors packages from pypi.python.org. * On demand: Packages are downloaded only when requested for. * Lightweight: Downloads and mirrors only those versions requested for.
- Continuous integration: Test all defined source builds at defined intervals and/or based on git / hg commits. Offer readonly web based interface to past tests and results
- Apache integration using mod_wsgi
- Refresh pypi packages and indices
- Additional python versions (currently tested only with python 3.3)
Create and activate a python virtual environment
- Currently only tested with python version 3.3. Additional versions to be added later
$ pip install nestegg
Create configuration file for nestegg in your home directory $HOME/nestegg.yml
For each source build / version defined, nestegg will :
- Create a git or hg clone from the git / hg repo
- Checkout the defined tag / branch
- Create a source distribution using python setup.py sdist
- Publish the distribution to the nestegg package repository.
- You can install/use the distribution using pip, easy_install etc.
All the source builds and versions you defined will be cloned, the corresponding tag checked out and source distributi
Start nestegg server:
Bottle v0.11.6 server starting up (using WSGIRefServer())... Listening on http://0.0.0.0:7654/ Hit Ctrl-C to quit.
Use http://localhost:7654/simple as the index url with pip or tox or other clients. eg.
$ pip install SQLAlchemy==0.8.2 --index-url=http://localhost:7654
- Create a desktop / intranet mirror of all packages used. Create new test virtualenvs readily without having to wait for long downloads
- Manage versions of your package dependencies (even if pypi eventually does not publish the versions you rely upon)
- Publish versions of libraries you fork, or any you create to a pypi like repository without having to publish it globally.
- Ensure access control. Continues to work with git/hg authentication over ssh
- (TODO) Continuous / automatic integration / testing of python packages you author and maintain.
