A plug-in for devpi-server which generates RSS feeds for indices.

Project description

devpi-rss is a plug-in for devpi-server which generates RSS feeds for devpi indices.



devpi-server >= 2.2.2
devpi-web >= 2.4.0


pip install devpi-rss

When the devpi-server gets started without a custom theme (without passing the --theme parameter), then no further configuration is required, since devpi-rss overwrites the templates/ of the default theme in order to make the RSS button visible. If you use a custom theme, then you have to manually apply the content of devpi-rss/templates/ into your theme.


By default every single index generates its own RSS feed, but an RSS feed can be activated or deactivated by modifying the regarding index property:

devpi-server index someuser/someindex rss_active=True


devpi-server index someuser/someindex rss_active=False

Additional devpi-server commandline options:

--rss-max-items RSS_MAX_ITEMS
                      maximum number of stored feed items [50]
--rss-truncate-desc   do not let descriptions exceed 32 lines or 1024
--rss-no-auto         do not automatically activate rss for new indices


  • fix for python3.4 (thx to kelnmaari)


  • fix xml declaration (‘utf-8’ instead of ‘utf8’)


  • fix callback signature (projectname -> project) (required for recent pluggy version)
