Support loading version from a file #1359

merged 1 commit into from May 15, 2018


Copy link

Proposed resolution for #1358. Adds support for using "file:" to load the package version from a text file. It strips any leading or trailing whitespace, since trailing newlines are pretty likely in such a file.

I haven't tried this on live code, but it looks nice!

I think I'm more or less fine with this, except that I think the resulting string should be more constrained.

Per discussion at PyCon sprints, we should just start by validating that it's a valid PEP 440 version, and if people complain about this restriction we can possibly add a mechanism for opting out.

This support was added in (pypa/setuptools#1359), which
was quite a while ago, so I believe it is safe to use this feature now and
expect people to be able to process this metadata format.
