Setup your own PyPI:

This section guides you through the quickest way to setup pulp_python to act as your very own private PyPI.

Create a Repository:

Repositories are the base objects Pulp uses to store and organize its content. They are automatically versioned when content is added or deleted and allow for easy rollbacks to previous versions.

# Start by creating a new repository named "foo":
pulp python repository create --name foo

Repository Create Response:

     "pulp_href": "/pulp/api/v3/repositories/python/python/3fe0d204-217f-4250-8177-c83b30751fca/",
     "pulp_created": "2021-06-02T14:54:53.387054Z",
     "versions_href": "/pulp/api/v3/repositories/python/python/3fe0d204-217f-4250-8177-c83b30751fca/versions/",
     "pulp_labels": {},
     "latest_version_href": "/pulp/api/v3/repositories/python/python/3fe0d204-217f-4250-8177-c83b30751fca/versions/1/",
     "name": "foo",
     "description": null,
     "retained_versions": null,
     "remote": null,
     "autopublish": false

Create a Distribution:

Distributions serve the content stored in repositories so that it can be used by tools like pip.

pulp python distribution create --name my-pypi --base-path my-pypi --repository foo

Distribution Create Response:

  "pulp_href": "/pulp/api/v3/distributions/python/pypi/e8438593-fd40-4654-8577-65398833c331/",
  "pulp_created": "2021-06-03T20:04:18.233230Z",
  "base_path": "my-pypi",
  "base_url": "",
  "content_guard": null,
  "pulp_labels": {},
  "name": "my-pypi",
  "repository": "/pulp/api/v3/repositories/python/python/3fe0d204-217f-4250-8177-c83b30751fca/",
  "publication": null,
  "allow_uploads": true

Upload and Install Packages:

Packages can now be uploaded to the index using your favorite Python tool. The index url will be available at /pypi/<distribution.base_path>/simple/.

# Build custom package
python -m build $PLUGIN_SOURCE
# Upload built package distributions to my-pypi
twine upload --repository-url $BASE_ADDR/pypi/my-pypi/simple/ -u admin -p password "$PLUGIN_SOURCE"dist/*

Packages can then be installed using your favorite Python tool:

pip install --trusted-host localhost -i $BASE_ADDR/pypi/my-pypi/simple/ shelf-reader

Now you have a fully operational Python package index. Check out the other workflows to see more features of pulp_python.
