Synchronise packages between two python software repositories
pkgsync is a tool used to move python packages from one repository to another. Say, for example you use a pypi-clone application such as chishop and you want to synchronise some packages from pypi to it, or you have multiple pypi clone applications, etc.
This makes sure that all the versions of some package on repository A are copied to repository B if they don’t already exist on B.
pkgsync is particularly useful because it uses pkginfo to introspect packages so you don’t have to:
$ tar zxf something-1.2.3.tar.gz $ cd something-1.2.3/ $ python setup.py sdist register upload -r privaterepo
which is flawed for being slow and often showing up issues where people have packaged their software incorrectly, with missing MANIFEST.in files, etc., plus dates change, md5sums change… in short it’s messy. Using pkgsync is less-so.
Supports upload and download authentication just in case you have a password- protected private repository to copy from/to.
Very naively support for old-style packages - packages without any setuptools metadata in them. For these packages, we attempt to use the filename to determine the package name and release, then register the package using the value ‘UNKNOWN’ for all the other setuptools metadata (as per the spec).
Default --source-url is http://pypi.python.org since that’s probably your use -case.
If --destination-username is provided and --destination-password is not, you’ll be prompted for a password.
Full command-line options documentation available by doing pkgsync --help
pkgsync --destination-url=https://eggsample.com --destination-username=youruser tzinfo Django celery
Full repository sync:
pkgsync --source-url=https://eggsample.com --destination-url=https://newrepo.com --destination-username=youruser --all
It’s a pretty typical zc.buildout setup:
$ python bootstrap.py $ bin/buildout $ bin/pkginfo --help
