Introduction

Help building a pyenv local mirror!

Install

pip install pyenv-mirror

Usage

$ pyenv-mirror --help                                                                
Usage:
    pyenv-mirror create-mirror
    pyenv-mirror download-package <pkg-name> [<python-build-path>]

create-mirror

$ ls
$ pyenv-mirror create-mirror
$ ls
pyenv-local-mirror

Create a directory named pyenv-local-mirror in current working directory. The structure of pyenv-local-mirror is almost identical to yyuu/yyuu.github.com, except that all the so-called "packages" located in pyenv-local-mirror/pythons were removed.

download-package

pyenv-mirror download-package downloads all related files of a package to current working directory. pyenv-mirror download-package <pkg-name> [<python-build-path>]:

  • <pkg-name>, same as the arguement following pyenv install.
  • <python-build-path>, the path of python-build directory. If you installed pyenv through homebrew, you might need to pass the path of above directory explicitly. If omitted, the path is default to $PYENV_ROOT/plugins/python-build/share/python-build.
$ pyenv-mirror download-package 2.7 '/usr/local/Cellar/pyenv/20160310/plugins/python-build/share/python-build'

$ ls
Python-2.7.tgz        openssl-1.0.2g.tar.gz readline-6.3.tar.gz

Start The Mirror

  1. cd pyenv-local-mirror.
  2. Define your PYTHON_BUILD_MIRROR_URL in ./pythons/install-pyenv.sh.
  3. Customize HTTP port by changing PORT of ./pythons/run-http-server.sh. By default, PORT equals to 8999.
  4. Execute script ./pythons/run-http-server.sh.

Update Pyenv Index Page

  1. cd pyenv-local-mirror/pythons.
  2. Download Different Pythons (e.g. 2.7.x, 3.5.x) into source dir.
  3. Exec bash update.sh
  4. Open /pythons/index.html to see available Pythons info.

Install And Bind pyenv To Local Mirror

$ wget -O - '<your PYTHON_BUILD_MIRROR_URL>/scripts/install-pyenv.sh' | bash

Above command would install pyenv to $PYENV_ROOT. If omitted, $PYENV_ROOT defaults to ~/.pyenv.

After that, add

export PYTHON_BUILD_MIRROR_URL=$<your PYTHON_BUILD_MIRROR_URL>/pythons

to your configuration file so that pyenv could download the packages from your local mirror.

Incremental Update on Python Versions

When you need to install a new Python into your local Pyenv, e.g., 2.7.11, usually, you can do as following:

pyenv install 2.7.11

However, as newer Pythons come into being, local Pyenv does have the index to download them. Therefore, a safer way to install Pythons for local Pyenv would be like:

  1. Download index of needed version, e.g., 2.7.13, from here into a directory, say xxx_dir
  2. cd xxx_dir
  3. pyenv install 2.7.13
  4. rm the index file, 2.7.13
You can’t perform that action at this time.
