Check whether a package name is available on PyPi
$ pip install pip-name
$ pip-name <name>
$ pip-name flake8 flake8 is unavailable $ pip-name blake201 blake201 is available $ pip-name chromatic chromatic is unavailable
Let's see, It's a pain in the ass to finally upload that module you've been writing for a while only to realize that a package with that same name already exists up there.
Do you want to make this better? Open an issue and/or a PR on Github. Thanks!
