This is a PyPI compatible package index serving the latest development snapshots and pre-releases of stable versions of Riverbank Computing's open source packages.
Development snapshots are uploaded to this server whenever changes are made to the source code of a package. Older snapshots are removed at the same time.
When a new stable version of a package is about to be released it is first uploaded to this server (replacing any development snapshots) where it can be tested. After a few days it is then uploaded to the main PyPI server at python.org and removed from this server.
At the moment there are 150 development snapshots and pre-releases available. The complete list can be found here.
To use this server with
pip, specify the
--index-url install option with the URL of the server. If
you want to install a development snapshot then you should also specify
--pre install option.
For example, if you want to install the latest development snapshot of PyQt6 and all its dependencies, then run:
pip install --index-url https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/pypi/simple/ --pre --upgrade PyQt6
