'''ratings(name,version,since)'''
  Retrieve a list (name, version, user_name, date, rating, message) listing all ratings for a given release. If version is an empty string, lists all ratings on the package; if name is an empty string, lists all ratings in PyPI. user_name is an empty string if there is no comment.

PyPI's XML-RPC methods

Example usage:

>>> import xmlrpclib
>>> server = xmlrpclib.Server('http://pypi.python.org/pypi')
>>> server.package_releases('roundup')
['1.1.2']
>>> server.release_urls('roundup', '1.1.2')
[{'has_sig': True, 'comment_text': '', 'python_version': 'source', 'url': 'http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/r/roundup/roundup-1.1.2.tar.gz', 'md5_digest': '7c395da56412e263d7600fa7f0afa2e5', 'downloads': 2989, 'filename': 'roundup-1.1.2.tar.gz', 'packagetype': 'sdist', 'size': 876455}, {'has_sig': True, 'comment_text': '', 'python_version': 'any', 'url': 'http://pypi.python.org/packages/any/r/roundup/roundup-1.1.2.win32.exe', 'md5_digest': '983d565b0b87f83f1b6460e54554a845', 'downloads': 2020, 'filename': 'roundup-1.1.2.win32.exe', 'packagetype': 'bdist_wininst', 'size': 614270}]

list_packages()

  • Retrieve a list of the package names registered with the package index. Returns a list of name strings.

package_releases(package_name, show_hidden=False)

  • Retrieve a list of the releases registered for the given package_name. Returns a list with all version strings if show_hidden is True or only the non-hidden ones otherwise.

release_urls(package_name, version)

  • Retrieve a list of download URLs for the given package release. Returns a list of dicts with the following keys:
    • url
    • packagetype ('sdist', 'bdist', etc)
    • filename
    • size
    • md5_digest
    • downloads
    • has_sig
    • python_version (required version, or 'source', or 'any')
    • comment_text

release_data(package_name, version)

  • Retrieve metadata describing a specific package release. Returns a dict with keys for:
    • name
    • version
    • stable_version
    • author
    • author_email
    • maintainer
    • maintainer_email
    • home_page
    • license
    • summary
    • description
    • keywords
    • platform
    • download_url
    • classifiers (list of classifier strings)

search(spec[, operator])

  • Search the package database using the indicated search spec.
  • The spec may include any of the keywords described in the above list (except 'stable_version' and 'classifiers'), for example: {'description': 'spam'} will search description fields. Within the spec, a field's value can be a string or a list of strings (the values within the list are combined with an OR), for example: {'name': ['foo', 'bar']}. Arguments for different fields are combined using either "and" (the default) or "or". Example: search({'name': 'foo', 'description': 'bar'}, 'or'). The results are returned as a list of dicts {'name': package name, 'version': package release version, 'summary': package release summary}

changelog(since)

  • Retrieve a list of four-tuples (name, version, timestamp, action) since the given timestamp. All timestamps are UTC values. The argument is a UTC integer seconds since the epoch.

ratings(name,version,since)

  • Retrieve a list (name, version, user_name, date, rating, message) listing all ratings for a given release. If version is an empty string, lists all ratings on the package; if name is an empty string, lists all ratings in PyPI. user_name is an empty string if there is no comment.
