Software repository server

Artifactd provides an HTTP API for repository management. Currently, Python and Apt repositories are supported.


  • Pull or build the image
  • docker run -it --rm -e 'DATABASE_URL=mysql+pymysql://...' -e 'S3_URL=http://...' -p 8080:8080 artifact

The in-container webserver will listen on port 8080 by default. Database url is passed directly to sqlalchemy, but only mysql is tested. S3_URL is in the form of https?://keyname:keysecret@endpoint_url/bucket_name. Amazon S3 is supported but minio is the preferred backend.


Upload python package:

curl -vv -F 'f=@pyircbot-4.0.0.post3-py3.5.egg' 'http://localhost:8080/addpkg?provider=pypi&reponame=reponame&name=pyircbot&version=4.0.0'

Install python packages:

pip3 install -i http://host/repo/pypi/reponame/ --trusted-host host <packages>

Upload apt package:

curl -vv -F 'f=@python3_3.6.7-1~18.04_amd64.deb' 'http://host/addpkg?provider=apt&reponame=reponame&name=python3&version=3.6.7-1~18.04&dist=bionic'

Install apt packages:

wget -qO- http://host/repo/apt/reponame/pubkey | apt-key add - && \
echo "deb http://host/repo/apt/reponame bionic main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list && \
apt-get update


Building on the rest endpoints above:


  • rpcli -s http://localhost:8080 upload -y apt -f extpython-python3.6_3.6.7_amd64.deb_trusty -r reponame -p extpython-python3.6 -i 3.6.7 -a dist=trusty


  • rpcli -s http://localhost:8080 upload -y pypi -f tensorflow-2.0.0a0-cp37-cp37m-manylinux1_x86_64.whl -r reponame -p tensorflow -i 2.0.0a0


  • Repos are created automatically when a package is added to them.
  • Repo URLs are structured as: /repo/<provider>/<name>. URLs at and below this level are handled directly by the provider.
  • In the apt provider, only binary-amd64 packages are supported. No source, binary-i386 or other groups
  • In the apt provider, every repo has only one component, named "main"
  • The apt provider will generate a gpg key per repo upon repo creation
  • The repo contents can be browsed on the web
  • This uses my fork of python-dpkg, from here, which is not automatically installed via due to pip limitations.
  • The apt provider includes a convenience shell script:
apt-get update && \
apt-get install -y wget gnupg && \
wget -qO- http://host/repo/apt/reponame/dists/trusty/install | bash -x /dev/stdin


  • Auth
  • Delete packages
  • Support using existing GPG keys
  • Nicer UI
