Project description

Build Status Coverage Status


pip+wheel wrapper which allows you to choose a custom platform name for building, downloading, and installing wheels.

This package assumes you're running your own PyPI server and would like support for wheels on named platforms that would otherwise be considered equivalent by the wheel infrastructure (for example not all linux_x86_64 are created equal).

Default platform names

By default, pip-custom-platform guesses a platform name for you based on the distro module for Linux, and uses the default platform name on Windows, OS X, or other systems. Some examples:

Platform Default Platform Name
Ubuntu Trusty (14.04) linux_ubuntu_14_04_x86_64
Debian Jessie (8) linux_debian_8_x86_64
CentOS 7 linux_centos_7_x86_64
Fedora 22 linux_fedora_22_x86_64
Red Hat 7 linux_rhel_7_x86_64
openSUSE 13.2 linux_opensuse_13_x86_64

You can choose your own platform name by passing --platform my_platform on the command line.


pip install pip-custom-platform
