qypi is a command-line client for querying & searching the Python Package Index for Python package information and outputting JSON (with some minor opinionated changes to the output data structures; see the examples below).

Installation

qypi requires Python 3.6 or higher. Just use version 6.0 or higher of pip for Python 3 (You have pip, right?) to install qypi and its dependencies:

python3 -m pip install qypi

Usage

qypi [-i|--index-url <URL>] <command> [<options>] [<arguments>]

Global Option

-i URL, --index-url URL
 Query the Python package server at the given URL, which must support both the XML-RPC and JSON APIs. By default, qypi queries PyPI (Warehouse) at https://pypi.org/pypi.

List Packages

list

qypi list

List all packages registered on PyPI, one per line, in the order that they are returned by the API. list and readme are the only subcommands that do not output JSON.

browse

qypi browse [-f|--file <file>] [--packages|--releases] <classifier> ...

List packages or package releases with the given trove classifiers. Because trove classifiers are not the most command-line friendly thing in the world, they may optionally be read from a file, one classifier per line. Any further classifiers listed on the command line will be added to the file’s list.

By default, browse lists every matching release for every package, even if the same package has multiple matching releases. To list no more than one release (specifically, the highest-versioned) per package, specify the -p/--packages option on the command line. -r/--releases restores the default behavior.

owned

qypi owned <user> ...

List packages owned or maintained by the given PyPI users

Package Information

releases

qypi releases <package> ...

List the released versions for the given packages in PEP 440 order

Example:

$ qypi releases qypi
{
    "qypi": [
        {
            "is_prerelease": false,
            "release_date": "2017-04-02T03:07:42",
            "release_url": "https://pypi.org/project/qypi/0.1.0",
            "version": "0.1.0"
        },
        {
            "is_prerelease": false,
            "release_date": "2017-04-02T03:32:44",
            "release_url": "https://pypi.org/project/qypi/0.1.0.post1",
            "version": "0.1.0.post1"
        }
    ]
}

A release’s release date is the time at which its first file was uploaded. If there are no files associated with a release, its release date will be null.

owner

qypi owner <package> ...

List the PyPI users that own and/or maintain the given packages

Example:

$ qypi owner requests
{
    "requests": [
        {
            "role": "Owner",
            "user": "graffatcolmingov"
        },
        {
            "role": "Owner",
            "user": "kennethreitz"
        },
        {
            "role": "Owner",
            "user": "Lukasa"
        },
        {
            "role": "Maintainer",
            "user": "graffatcolmingov"
        },
        {
            "role": "Maintainer",
            "user": "Lukasa"
        },
        {
            "role": "Maintainer",
            "user": "nateprewitt"
        }
    ]
}

Release Information

These subcommands show information about individual package releases/versions and share the same command-line options and argument syntax.

Arguments of the form package==version (e.g., qypi info qypi==0.1.0) always refer to the given version of the given package.

Arguments that are just a package name refer to (by default) the highest-numbered non-prerelease version of the package. This can be changed with the following options:

-A, --all-versions
 Show information for all versions of each package (in PEP 440 order, excluding prereleases unless --pre is given)
--latest-version
 Show information for only the latest version of each package; this is the default
--newest Define “latest version” to mean the most recently released version. Release dates are based on file upload times; releases without file uploads are thus ignored.
--highest Define “latest version” to mean the highest-numbered version; this is the default.
--pre Include prerelease & development versions
--no-pre Don’t include prerelease & development versions; this is the default.

info

qypi info [<options>] [--description] [--trust-downloads] <package[==version]> ...

Show basic information about the given package releases.

By default, (long) descriptions are omitted because they can be very long, and it is recommended that you view them with the readme subcommand instead; use the --description option to include them anyway.

By default, download counts are omitted because the feature is currently broken & unreliable; use the --trust-downloads option if you want to see the values anyway.

Example:

$ qypi info qypi
[
    {
        "bugtrack_url": null,
        "classifiers": [
            "Development Status :: 4 - Beta",

readme

qypi readme [<options>] <package[==version]> ...

Display the given package releases’ (long) descriptions in a pager one at a time. list and readme are the only subcommands that do not output JSON.

files

qypi files [<options>] [--trust-downloads] <package[==version]> ...

List files available for download for the given package releases. Download counts are omitted because the feature is currently broken & unreliable; use the --trust-downloads option if you want to see the values anyway.

Example:

$ qypi files qypi
[
    {
        "files": [
