ActiveState's Python Package Manager Index


ActiveState has launched Python Package Manager Index (PyPM Index) to give developers a more complete picture of Python build information and package availability across multiple platforms. PyPM Index shows developers instantly if Python packages they need are available for all the platforms they must deploy on, providing critical information to speed up the design phase of development. With PyPM Index, developers now have direct access via the web to search PyPM repositories (collections of ActivePython packages).

Over 7,000 packages are indexed and build version and OS-specific information, detailed documentation, and package dependencies are provided. It also enables developers to easily see which Python packages are available through ActivePython Community Edition, and which are only available in paid editions (Business, Enterprise Edition).

In addition to the many pre-built packages already included in the ActivePython repository, PyPM Index also lists package information for hundreds of packages from Python.org’s PyPI repository that failed to build successfully to assist developers with build failure information as well.
