Project description

Simple PyPI Proxy

Belt is a simple PyPI proxy. Any packages that exist locally will be
installed direct from disk, non-existent packages will be installed from PyPI
and stored locally for future use.

The latest version is always available at `

To install::

easy_install belt


pip install belt

Create a config file setting `local_packages` to wherever you want to store
your locally cached packages::

cat << EOF > production.ini

use = egg:belt

pyramid.reload_templates = false
pyramid.debug_authorization = false
pyramid.debug_notfound = false
pyramid.debug_routematch = false
pyramid.default_locale_name = en
pyramid.includes =

jinja2.directories = belt:templates
jinja2.filters =
route_url = pyramid_jinja2.filters:route_url_filter

local_packages = /vagrant/pypi

use = egg:waitress#main
host =
port = 6543

keys = root, belt

keys = console

keys = generic

level = WARN
handlers = console

level = WARN
handlers =
qualname = belt

class = StreamHandler
args = (sys.stderr,)
level = NOTSET
formatter = generic

format = %(asctime)s %(levelname)-5.5s [%(name)s][%(threadName)s] %(message)s

Then run with `pserve`::

pserve production.ini

You can now install packages via your local proxy::

pip install -i http://localhost:6543/simple/ zest.releaser
