Python Packages Tools, with Python 3.3 support

Project Description

pkgtools is a Python library that offers some tools to work with Python Packages. It includes two packages:

  • pkgtools.pypi: a simple yet powerful interface to PyPI (Python Package Index)
  • pkgtools.pkg: some package utilities, like metadata reading
