Manages devpi - PyPI server and packaging/testing/release tool

Module Description

Installs devpi via pip, manages upstart/systemd script and service.


What devpi affects

  • Creates serverdir in /opt/devpi (configurable)
  • Creates user devpi (configurable)
  • Creates service devpi-server
  • Installs pip package devpi-server
  • Optionally installs pip package devpi-client

Setup Requirements

Requires python, pip and modern enough setuptools

Beginning with devpi

Install it using PMT:

puppet module install unibet-devpi


Usage in its simplest form:

class { '::devpi': }

If you want the client installed as well:

class { '::devpi':
  client => true

You may want to install devpi contained in a virtualenv in which case you could declare it as follows (using the stankevich-python module for virtualenv management):

$virtualenv = '/venv'

::python::virtualenv { $virtualenv:
  ensure     => present,
  systempkgs => false,
  timeout    => 0,

::python::pip { 'devpi-server':
  pkgname    => 'devpi-server==2.1.5',
  virtualenv => $virtualenv,

class { '::devpi':
  virtualenv  => $virtualenv

Setting custom port and host listener:

class { '::devpi':
  listen_host => '',
  listen_port => 13141


The only external facing class should be "devpi". It uses the anchor pattern for class containment so you can form dependencies to Class['devpi'] and expect all resources declared within the devpi class to be realized.
