NOTE: this package is no longer maintained. You can use
pip list --outdated or
pipenv update --outdated to show outdated packages (with a little less whimsy).
How rotten are your requirements?
tl;dr: piprot allows you to check the requirements defined in your requirements files for freshness.
The latest release of piprot can be installed via PyPI:
pip install -U piprot
Run piprot and provide a requirements file (if it's not called requirements.txt) and it will tell you the current status of your packages.
> piprot base_requirements.txt requests (2.3.0) is up to date six (1.6.1) is 107 days out of date. Latest is 1.7.3 piprot (0.6.0) is up to date doge (3.4.0) is 129 days out of date. Latest is 3.5.0 Your requirements are 236 days out of date
If your requirements file is named "requirements.txt", you don't need to provide it. piprot will automatically traverse included requirements files.
--verbatim argument will output your complete requirements file,
with some comments about the out of date nature of your packages.
> piprot --verbatim # Requirements for Piprot # This actually doubles as a test file requests==2.3.0 six==1.6.1 # Latest 1.7.3 piprot==0.6.0 # notarequirement==0.1.1 doge==3.4.0 # Latest 3.5.0 # Generated with piprot 0.7.0 # Your requirements are 236 days out of date
--outdated will show only the out of date requirements, pretty
much the same as running
pip list -o, except on a requirements file.
> piprot --outdated six (1.6.1) is 107 days out of date. Latest is 1.7.3 doge (3.4.0) is 129 days out of date. Latest is 3.5.0 Your requirements are 236 days out of date
--latest argument will output the requirements lines with the
current version replaced with the latest version.
> piprot --latest ipython (1.1.0) is 331 days out of date. Latest is 2.2.0 ipython==2.2.0 # Updated from 1.1.0 Django (1.5.4) is 241 days out of date. Latest is 1.6.5 Django==1.6.5 # Updated from 1.5.4 requests (1.2.3) is 356 days out of date. Latest is 2.3.0 requests==2.3.0 # Updated from 1.2.3 Your requirements are 928 days out of date
Personally, I like to use
creating a sort-of ''perfect'' requirements file for me,
> piprot --latest --verbatim # Development Requirements ipython==2.2.0 # Updated from 1.1.0 Django==1.6.5 # Updated from 1.5.4 requests==2.3.0 # Updated from 1.2.3 # Generated with piprot 0.8.0 # Your requirements are 928 days out of date
Yep, you can use stdin as well if you really want to, but there are better tools for working with packages installed in your environment.
pip freeze | piprot
(New in 0.9) You can also lookup requirements from a Github repo with the
--path options. Additionally you can use
supply a Personal Access Token to remotely test private repositories.
> piprot -g sesh/piprot requests (2.4.2) is out of date. Latest is 2.4.3 requests-futures (0.9.5) is up to date six (1.8.0) is up to date piprot (0.8.2) is up to date Looks like you've been keeping up to date, time for a delicious beverage!
You can also ignore packages using a norot comment in your requirements file.
# Inside requirements.txt # Note: two spaces before # norot Django==1.6.5 # norot
You can set up a delay before piprot throws an error. This is useful when you set up piprot in CI but cannot always upgrade the dependencies.
> piprot --delay 7 ipython (1.1.0) is 5 days out of date. Latest is 1.1.1 All of your dependencies are at most 7 days out of date. # Displays a warning but does not throw an error
Working with your environment
piprot is designed around working with requirements defined in a requirements file. Check out pip-tools if you're looking for something similar that's designed for use against the packages that you actually have installed.
To run the test suite, execute
python -m unittest discover, within
the project directory.
