RePi client, a Redis PubSub interface for PyPi.
RePi manages your virtual environments, whether they’re are all on the same machine or not. You can remotely list installed PyPi packages or install new ones. RePi does not, unlike Chef or Puppet, require a SSH connection. All you need is a Redis server your machines can connect to. If you want to go crazy, you can also use the nightly Redis build which supports clustering. RePi will still work.
You need to install this module in each of your virtual environments. After that, you need to install repi-server to manage them.
repi-client requires a running Redis server. See Redis’ quickstart for installation instructions. repi-client is compatible with Redis clusters (which is an experimental feature at this point).
$ pip install repi-client
or from source:
$ python setup.py install
After installation, you can run the ‘repi-client’ script.
$ repi-client my_client_name
To connect to a Redis host different from ‘localhost’, you can see a list of all the available options by running:
$ repi-client -h
