The goal of this page is to list alternatives to the reference implementation, since it's quite hard to find them in any index (most hits will be about packages available in the package index, not about it).

Full implementations

Simple repository with fallback using Apache

The following implements two local repositories that fall back to PyPI for packages that have no local override. "dev" is for development snapshots and open for all developers, "stable" is only writable by the QC team. Note that creating a local copy of a package shadows all versions in PyPI, since the index page is then generated locally and does not include the versions found on PyPI.

httpd.conf
# Mount pypi repositories into URI space
Alias /pypi   /var/pypi

# /pypi/dev: Redirect for unknown packages (fallback to pypi)
RewriteCond   /var/pypi/dev/$1 !-d
RewriteCond   /var/pypi/dev/$1 !-f
RewriteRule   ^/pypi/dev/([^/]+)/?$ http://pypi.python.org/pypi/$1/ [R,L]

RewriteCond   /var/pypi/dev/$1/$2 !-f
RewriteRule   ^/pypi/dev/([^/]+)/([^/]+)$ http://pypi.python.org/pypi/$1/$2 [R,L]

# /pypi/stable: Redirect for unknown packages (fallback to pypi)
RewriteCond   /var/pypi/stable/$1 !-d
RewriteCond   /var/pypi/stable/$1 !-f
RewriteRule   ^/pypi/stable/([^/]+)/?$ http://pypi.python.org/pypi/$1/ [R,L]

RewriteCond   /var/pypi/stable/$1/$2 !-f
RewriteRule   ^/pypi/stable/([^/]+)/([^/]+)$ http://pypi.python.org/pypi/$1/$2 [R,L]

These rules assume the RewriteEngine is switched on, and that directory index generation is enabled.

Things that would be nice
