Parched aims at providing a python module capable of parsing pacman packages and PKGBUILDs.



Parched is not currently registered with PyPI due to it's development status, however pip can install the module from a git repository:

pip install -e git://


First retrieve the source from the git repository, then follow the typical install procedure:

git clone git://
cd parched
python install


The documentation is not available online, however, you can retrieve the source and generate the documentation using sphinx:

git clone git://
cd parched/docs
make html

The code itself is also documented, so you can simply look at
