devpi: github-style pypi index server and packaging meta tool.

Project description

devpi is a meta package installing two other packages:

  • devpi-server: for serving a consistent caching index as well as local github-style overlay indexes.
  • devpi-client: command line tool with sub commands for creating users, using indexes, uploading to and installing from indexes, as well as a “test” command for invoking tox.
