Cydra is a platform for project hosting written in Python. It has an extensible architecture to facilitate integration of 3rd party software such as version control systems and project management tools.

Cydra is ideal for organizations wishing to provide code hosting facilities for their users. Projects and repositories can be created via the built-in web interface.


Cydra provides the glue code to integrate authentication/authorization with version control systems and 3rd party tools. Builtin or plugin support exists for:

  • Project meta-data storage: mongoDB, yaml files
  • Version Control: git, svn, hg
  • Project Management: trac
  • Authorization: internal, permission can be set via web interface
  • Authentication: htpasswd, ldap/AD
  • VCS Viewers: hgwebdir, apache-dav-svn
  • VCS Access: gitserverglue (ssh/http/git protocols)


Right now, Cydra is being used in two productional deployments, one of which hosts ~2500 projects. Still, at least some refactoring will have to be done on the way to a 1.0 release and inputs/ideas/code contributions are welcome.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
