A small PyPI replacement based on a local distribution directory (implemented using GROK)

Project description

haufe.eggserver is a tiny webfront to a local egg/sourcecode archive distribution directory (eggs and other distribution files stored directly on the filesystem).

It currently supports basic browsing through a local distribution directory on the filesystem and basic upload support for eggs and source code distributions (requires haufe.releaser). It supports out-of-the-box infinite repository directories.

haufe.eggserver supports the standard setuptools upload protocol as well as out-of-the-box support for zc.buildout (find-links option).


  • download the source code archive and unpack it

  • run buildout

  • start the instance using bin/zopectl start

  • add an eggserver application instance through the management interface

  • use the edit view for configuring the path to your local distribution directory and the visible title of your instance (Login with username admin and password 123)


  • zc.buildout (use easy_install for installing zc.buildout)

  • Grok (will be installed automatically when using zc.buildout)

  • gocept.cache (willl be installed automatically when using zc.buildout)

  • optional haufe.releaser (use easy_install for install haufe.releaser)

Uploading packages

You have to choices:

  • use haufe.releaser and its local_upload command

  • use the standard setuptools upload command:

    python2.4 sdist upload -r http://localhost:8080/eggs

    A 409 HTTP status code will be returned if the upload file exists.

Things haufe.eggserver won’t do

Since haufe.eggserver is not designed as a full-fledged PyPI replacement, there are some things that the implementation will not do right do (and possibly will not do):

  • no dedicated security model (everyone is trused and allowed to upload packages). Keep in mind that haufe.eggserver is basically designed for company/project internal usage
