The command-line client for the Patchwork patch tracking tool

Project description

PyPi Status Documentation Status

pwclient is a VCS-agnostic tool for interacting with Patchwork, the web-based patch tracking system.


The easiest way to install pwclient and its dependencies is using pip. To do so, run:

$ pip install pwclient

You can also install pwclient manually. First, install the required dependencies. On Fedora, run:

$ sudo dnf install python-pbr

On Ubuntu, run:

$ sudo apt-get install python-pbr

Once dependencies are installed, clone this repo and run

$ git clone
$ cd pwclient
$ pip install --user .  # or 'sudo python install'

Getting Started

To use pwclient, you will need a .pwclientrc file, located in your home directory ($HOME or ~). Patchwork itself provides sample .pwclientrc files for projects at /project/{projectName}/pwclientrc/. For example, here is the .pwclientrc file for Patchwork itself.


If you’re interested in contributing to pwclient, first clone the repo:

$ git clone
$ cd pwclient

Create a virtualenv, then install the package in editable mode:

$ virtualenv .venv
$ source .venv/bin/activate
$ pip install --editable .
