appypi: sandboxing apps from Pypi packages

Project description

appypi is a terminal-based [Python Package Index]( package manager. Each app installed through appypi is sandboxed in an individual virtualenv and usable from the user space. No root access is required to install an app. appypi in NOT a replacement for [pip]( or [easy_install]( Actually, it uses pip intensively to manage package installations.

appypi creates launchers into the user ~/bin directory. These launchers mimic the package behavior in terms of what commands can be called. For example, appypi will create a launcher when installing the [django]( package, and a fab launcher when installing the [Fabric]( package. This way, you can use the package as if it was installed with pip directly.

appypi won’t install a package if it finds it in your path already. It is your duty to take care of these external installations before using appypi.

$ appypi install django Looking for django… Found Django version 1.4.2 Installing… Install successful!
