Mirroring tool that implements the client (mirror) side of PEP 381

Project description

This application implements a PyPI mirror application according to PEP 381.

Installation

It is possible to run this application directly from the source distribution. Alternatively, ‘python setup.py install’ could be used.

The actual mirroring is performed by the pep381run script, which should be invoked through cron like this:

*/15 *  *   *   *     /path/pep381client/pep381run -q /var/pypi

The command line arguments points to root of the data files that the mirror creates. An initial run (without the -q option) should be performed manually. It is possible to interrupt the mirroring; it will automatically know where to continue when restarted.

In above example, /var/pypi/web must be served through the webserver. An Apache configuration could read like this:

<VirtualHost IPADDRESS:80>
  ServerName X.pypi.python.org
  CustomLog /var/log/apache2/pypi.log combined
  DocumentRoot /var/pypi/web
</VirtualHost>

To propagate the download statistics back to the central server, processlogs must be run regularly, e.g. through:

10 7  *   *   *     /path/pep381client/processlogs /var/pypi /var/log/apache2/pypi.log{,.1}
