Simplified Package Management for Python
Plant is a simplified package manager for your Python projects.
Programmers have routinely complained about
pip not being as elegant as
npm when it comes to installing dependencies. For example, with
has to always specify a
requirements.txt file for installing the packages
needed for a project. This is an inconvenience, especially when compared to
npm, which has an elegant command
npm install to install all the
dependencies mentioned in the project's
package.json by default.
plant, Python programmers, especially the lazy ones (i.e. the good
ones) don't have to face this inconvenience. This packages boils all of the
hassle down to
$ pip-plant, which simply installs all the dependencies
mentioned in your project's
$ pip-plant Requirements detected! Found 10 dependencies. Please wait, installing! ... [standard pip output] ... All dependencies installed!
That's basically it.
$ pip install pip-plant
This isn't the only problem
plant solves. More features coming soon include
automatic requirements file updation, dependency stats (i.e. dependency usage
proportions measurement in your project) and much more!
