Python Package Manager (PyPM) is a Python utility intended to simplify the tasks of locating, installing, upgrading and removing Python packages. It can determine if the most recent version of a software package is installed on a system, and can install or upgrade that package from a local or remote host.

PyPM is non-free and may only be used with ActiveState's ActivePython distribution.

PyPM uses “PyPM Repositories”,[1] collections of pre-compiled packages. These repositories contain a high variety of modules, published on PyPI.

PyPM is inspired by Perl package manager (PPM).
