Package pypi-tools contains now only one script called pypi. It is command line utility for searching in Python Package Index.


Let's find something. What about some django gravatar application?

$ pypi django avatar $

Hmm, nothing. Ok, maybe just gravatar? :)

$ pypi gravatar django-gravatar - Gravatar Support in a Django Reusable Application gravatar - Gravatar generator. Includes all API parameters included in their documentation. tw.gravatar - inserts gravatar images tw.gravatar - inserts gravatar images

Cool. It found something. Duplicated tw.gravatar line looks like a bug :)

Let's see what is tw.gravatar.

$ pypi -s tw.gravatar

name: tw.gravatar summary: inserts gravatar images version: 0.1a0dev-20100727 author: Nicolas Laurance author_email: nicolas[dot]laurance<at>gmail.com keywords: toscawidgets.widgets,gravatar classifiers: Development Status :: 3 - Alpha

Ooops, it is not django application.

pypi command understand complex search queries. You can see the list of search operators in pypi -h output.

Here is example of searching all crap I have uploaded on the Python Package Index:

lorien@big:/web/pypi-tools$ ./pypi --author_email lorien@lorien.name django-account - Django application for registration and authentication django-bookmarker - Social bookmark linsk django-common - A number of useful django shortcuts and helpers ...
