Plugin for zest.releaser to allow putting the created egg in a standard buildout folder

Project Description


This is a plugin for zest.releaser for being able to automatically copy releases of your products to a local directory.

This can be useful in some special customer environments, for example behind strong firewall and network policies, where reaching an external pypi repository is not simple.

How to use

You must configure your ~/.pypirc file, adding to it a configuration like the one that follow:

pypi-local = ../../pypi-local

In this example next time you will run the fullrelease utility, a folder named pypi-local will be searched two level above the current working directory.

In a common buildout environment this is a normal situation:

         |_ pypi-local
          \_ src
               \_ your.package

It this way the pypi-local folder will be looked in the buildout directory root.

You can also provide multiple path, or system absolute paths:

pypi-local = ../../pypi-local
global = /opt/global-pypi

For every found match, zest.releaser will ask to you if copy the release in the folder:

Register and upload to pypi (y/N)?
Register and upload to (Y/n)? n
Copy egg to folder /Users/keul/buildout/test/pypi-local (Y/n)? Y
Copy egg to folder /opt/global-pypi (Y/n)?
