package_releases(package_name, show_hidden=False):
     Returns list of release versions, as strings, e.g., ['0.1', '0.2b',

     Returns packages.stable_version; the current stable version of the
     package. E.g., the string '0.3'
'''package_releases(package name)'''
  Retrieve a list of the releases registered for the given package name. Returns a list of version strings.
Line 14: Line 23:
package_urls(package_name, version):

package_data(package_name, version):
     A dictionary that summarizes the releases table, plus
     release_classifiers. E.g.: { { {

'''release_data(package_name, version)'''
  Retrieve metadata describing a specific package release. Returns a dict with keys for:
Line 55: Line 29:
     All keys are required. Missing values are given as 'UNKNOWN'.      * name
     * version
     * stable_version
     * author

     * summary
     * description
     * keywords
     * platform
     * download_url
     * classifiers (list of classifier strings)

search(field_specifiers, [operator='and']):
     field_specifiers is a dictionary of {fieldname: searchvalue}.
     Returns a list like [(name, version)] of matching non-hidden
     records. The search values are case-insensitive and match any
     substring. The second argument indicates if all the field
     specifiers are ANDed or ORed together. The value defaults to
     'and' and is case-insensitive.
'''search(spec[, operator])'''
   Search the package database using the indicated search spec.
Line 65: Line 48:
changelog(since)
     Return a list of changed packages since the given timestamp;
     since is given in seconds since the Unix epoch. For each
     package, it provides name, version, submitted_date, and
     action.
 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.

PyPI's XML-RPC methods

Example usage:

>>> import xmlrpclib
>>> server = xmlrpclib.Server('http://pypi.python.org/pypi')
>>> server.package_releases('roundup')
['1.1.2']

[{'url':
'http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/r/roundup/roundup-1.1.2.tar.gz',
'packagetype': 'sdist'}, {'url':
'http://pypi.python.org/packages/any/r/roundup/roundup-1.1.2.win32.exe',
'packagetype': 'bdist_wininst'}]
