This post continues from How I Setup A Private PyPI Server Using Docker And Ansible

In this post, I will try to detail how to set up a private local PyPI server using Docker And Ansible.

TL;DR

Deploy/destroy devpi server running in Docker container using a single command.

After my initial research, I wanted to ensure that the deployment is deterministic and the PyPI repository can be torn down and recreated ad-hoc by a single command. In our case, a simple make pypi deploy an instance of PyPI server through an Ansible playbook.

According to the docs:

Ansible Playbooks offer a…

As part of the series, How I configured Jenkins CI server in a Docker container — I wanted to implement some sort of continuous code quality and integrate it to my continuous testing environment and on this post I will document how I configured SonarQube for continuous inspection of code quality (I have OCD when it comes to code quality) and we will perform a test on our local Git repository.
