Project description

Build Status Coverage Status Latest Version Requirements Status

Mario, the devpi-plumber, helps to automate and test large devpi installations. It offers a simple python commandline wrapper around the devpi client binary and utilities for using devpi in a test harness. To get access to the latter, install Mario with the extra test requirement:

pip install devpi-plumber[test]

Mario by Example:

Among others, it can be used to automate the upload of packages:

with DevpiClient('', 'user', 'secret') as devpi:

To make it easier to perform modifications on non-volatile indices, there is a context manager that temporarily toggles the volatile flag.

with volatile_index(devpi, 'user/prodindex'):

In order to simplify the testing of such plumbing scripts, it ships with a simple context manager for starting and stopping devpi servers in tests.

def do_maintenance(devpi):
    """ My plumbing script """
    # ...

users = {
    'user': {'password': 'secret'},
indices = {
    'user/prodindex': {},
    'user/testindex': {'bases': 'user/prodindex'},
with TestServer(users, indices) as devpi:
