GitHub | PyPI | Documentation | Issues | Changelog

pypi-simple is a client library for the Python Simple Repository API as specified in PEP 503 and updated by PEP 592 and PEP 629. With it, you can query the Python Package Index (PyPI) and other pip-compatible repositories for a list of their available projects and lists of each project’s available package files. The library also allows you to query package files for their project version, package type, file digests, requires_python string, and PGP signature URL.

See the documentation for more information.
