Welcome to Pulp Python

The python plugin extends pulpcore to support hosting python packages. This plugin is a part of the Pulp Project, and assumes some familiarity with the pulpcore documentation.

If you are just getting started, we recommend getting to know the basic workflows.

The REST API documentation for pulp_python is available here.


  • Create local mirrors of PyPI that you have full control over
  • Upload your own Python packages
  • Perform pip install from your Pulp Python repositories
  • Download packages on-demand to reduce disk usage
  • Every operation creates a restorable snapshot with Versioned Repositories
  • Curate your Python repositories with allowed and disallowed packages
  • Host content either locally or on S3/Azure/GCP
  • De-duplication of all saved content

Tech Preview

Some additional features are being supplied as a tech preview. There is a possibility that backwards incompatible changes will be introduced for these particular features. For a list of features currently being supplied as tech previews only, see the tech preview page.

How to use these docs

The documentation here should be considered the primary documentation for managing Python related content. All relevant workflows are covered here, with references to some pulpcore supplemental docs. Users may also find pulpcore’s conceptual docs useful.

This documentation falls into two main categories:

  1. How-to Guides shows the major features of the Python plugin, with links to reference docs.
  2. The REST API Docs are automatically generated and provide more detailed information for each minor feature, including all fields and options.
