pipshow removed unneeded method May 10, 2019
screenshot.png updated readme, fixed typos May 10, 2019


I came across the need today to show details about a random PyPi package which wasn't installed on my machine yet. So I simply did pip show <package_name> but it didn't return anything. pip has also removed the --no-install option for simulating an install through which I could have known these details too. So I wrote this little script to show the details of any package even if it isn't installed on your machine.


pip install pipshow




pip uninstall pipshow

You can’t perform that action at this time.
