Python with a Node.js-like module system.

Project description is a Python runtime compatible with CPython 2.7 and 3.3 – 3.6. It provides a separate but superior import mechanism for modules, bringing dependency management and ease of deployment for Python applications up to par with other languages, without virtualenvs. is inspired by Node.js.

Nodepy-pm,'s package manager, allows you to install and manage standard Python packages (using Pip under the hood) as well as package. Nodepy-pm is a powerful tool for deploying applications and command-line tools.

Installation is available from PyPI as nodepy-runtime. The Python version that you install it into will also be the Python version that you will use in your code. (Note that the six module is always available when using, allowing you to write cross-Python version code easily).

$ pip install nodepy-runtime

Add the --user flag if you don't want to install system-wide.

Installing nodepy-pm

Either install from the online script using the following command:

$ nodepy

Or install from the repository:

$ git clone
$ nodepy nodepy-pm/scripts/

Note The installer is not able to automatically detect whether was installed system-wide or with the --user option. If you installed with the --user option, pass the --global option to the install-script (global meaning user-location). The default is to install with --root (system-wide).

$ nodepy --global


  • Python bytecache loading/writing
  • Node.js-style traceback (Python's traceback sucks)
