pip-review is a convenience wrapper around
pip. It can list available updates by deferring to
pip list --outdated. It can also automatically or interactively install available updates for you by deferring to
$ pip-review requests==0.13.4 is available (you have 0.13.2) redis==2.4.13 is available (you have 2.4.9) rq==0.3.2 is available (you have 0.3.0)
Example, actually install everything:
$ pip-review --auto ... <pip install output>
Example, run interactively, ask to upgrade for each package:
$ pip-review --interactive requests==0.14.0 is available (you have 0.13.2) Upgrade now? [Y]es, [N]o, [A]ll, [Q]uit y ... redis==2.6.2 is available (you have 2.4.9) Upgrade now? [Y]es, [N]o, [A]ll, [Q]uit n rq==0.3.2 is available (you have 0.3.0) Upgrade now? [Y]es, [N]o, [A]ll, [Q]uit y ...
pip-review -h for a complete overview of the options.
Since version 0.5, you can also invoke pip-review as
python -m pip_review.
Before version 1.0,
pip-review had its own logic for finding package updates instead of relying on
pip list --outdated.
To install, simply use pip:
$ pip install pip-review
Decide for yourself whether you want to install the tool system-wide, or inside a virtual env. Both are supported.
To test with your active Python version:
To test under all (supported) Python versions:
The tests run quite slow, since they actually interact with PyPI, which involves downloading packages, etc. So please be patient.
pip-review was originally part of pip-tools but
has been discontinued as such. See Pin Your Packages by Vincent
Driessen for the original introduction. Since there are still use cases, the
tool now lives on as a separate package.
