pypi-tools 0.0.2

Command line PyPI search tool


Package pypi-tools contains now only one script called ``pypi``.
It is command line utility for searching in Python Package Index.


Let's find something. What about some django gravatar application?

$ pypi django avatar

Hmm, nothing. Ok, maybe just gravatar? :)

$ pypi gravatar
django-gravatar - Gravatar Support in a Django Reusable Application
gravatar - Gravatar generator. Includes all API parameters included in their documentation.
tw.gravatar - inserts gravatar images
tw.gravatar - inserts gravatar images

Cool. It found something. Duplicated tw.gravatar line looks like a bug :)

Let's see what is tw.gravatar.

$ pypi -s tw.gravatar
name: tw.gravatar
summary: inserts gravatar images
version: 0.1a0dev-20100727

Ooops, it is not django application.

``pypi`` command understand complex search queries. You can see the list of search
operators in ``pypi -h`` output.

Here is example of searching all crap I have uploaded on the Python Package Index:

lorien@big:/web/pypi-tools$ ./pypi --author_email
django-account - Django application for registration and authentication
django-bookmarker - Social bookmark linsk
django-common - A number of useful django shortcuts and helpers
