ppa-dev-tools is a Launchpad API client that lets you create and manage Personal Package Archives (PPAs) from the command-line.

This toolset provides a command line interface to Launchpad's API for handling PPAs.

An example workflow for checking build & test of a given package on various architecture might be:

   $ ppa create my-ppa
   $ dput *.changes my-ppa
   $ ppa wait my-ppa
   $ ppa tests my-ppa
   $ ppa destroy my-ppa

Installation can be performed via pip, snap, source, and debs in a PPA (of course!) For more details, see the INSTALL file:
