A common problem with Python development for large-scale teams is sharing internal libraries. At Vendasta we’ve been solving this problem using a private PyPI installation running on Google App Engine with Python eggs and wheels being served by Google Cloud Storage. Today, we are announcing the open source version of this tool — CloudPyPI.
CloudPyPI is a modification of pypiserver for running on Google App Engine. We’ve also introduced a simple user management system to allow authenticated access to your Python packages. Together, we’ve found this to be a robust tool for distributing private Python libraries internally. If this is a problem you’ve been trying to solve, give CloudPyPI a try — contributions and feature requests are always welcome.
