pypi-mirrors

Very simple tool that pings the PyPI mirrors and tells us when they were updated last.

I threw this together very quickly as a proof of concept feel free to fork, and send pull requests.

Config

Redis

It requires redis in order to cache some of the data. For local development it is assuming it to be running at localhost:6379 db:1 and no password. see config.py for more info.

GeoIP

In order to get the IP address geolocation lookup, you need to sign up for an account from http://ipinfodb.com/register.php . If you don't have the env variable set, you will not have access to the geo location information. set IPLOC_API_KEY with the API key they give you.

Email & Twitter

To get the twitter and email notifications to work correctly you need to create an environment.json file in /tmp with the variables and values shown below. replace <value> with the real values.

/tmp/environment.json:

{
"IPLOC_API_KEY": "<value>",
"TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY" : "<value>",
"TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET" : "<value>",
"TWITTER_ACCESS_KEY" : "<value>",
"TWITTER_ACCESS_SECRET" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_HOST" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_PORT" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_USER" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_PASSWORD" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_FROM" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_TO" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_BCC" : "<value>",
"EMAIL_TO_ADMIN": "<value>"
}

For installing the API Key on dotCloud you need to run the following command. replace <value> with the real values.

env variables:

dotcloud var set pypimirrors \
    'IPLOC_API_KEY=<value>' \
    'TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY=<value>' \
    'TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET=<value>' \
    'TWITTER_ACCESS_KEY=<value>' \
    'TWITTER_ACCESS_SECRET=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_HOST=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_PORT=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_USER=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_PASSWORD=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_FROM=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_TO=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_BCC=<value>' \
    'EMAIL_TO_ADMIN=<value>'

How it works

The pypi_mirrors.py script runs via a cron job and puts data into redis. There is one webpage that pull the data from redis and displays it. There is a daily cron job that runs and sends out notifications if the mirrors are out of date.

How to help

Pick one of the things on the TODO list and implement it and send a pull request.

Running locally

Make sure redis is running

  1. Collecting Data:

    $ python pypi_mirrors.py
    
  2. Running web server:

    $ python app.py
    # connect to http://localhost:5000 in browser
    

TODO:

  • Create a setup.py and add to PyPI
  • Add better documentation
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
