requirements.txt updater

This tool analyzes the versions of dependencies in the requirements.txt file and it provides updates to the major version.




We do not store any data from your requirements.txt. We only access the module names in order to retrieve the version history via the pypi API.

your updated requirements.txt

copy it to your enverinment and run pip install -r requirements.txt


Other ways to update pip dependencies via the console

There are several ways to update Python dependencies using pip. Please note that these methods can only perform updates up to the minor version:

  • pip install --upgrade <package-name>: Updates a specific dependency to the latest available version.
  • pip list --outdated: Displays which dependencies are outdated.
  • pip install <package-name>==<version>: Installs a specific version of a dependency.
  • pip install --upgrade -r requirements.txt: Installs the latest versions of all dependencies specified in the requirements.txt file.
  • pip-tools: A useful tool for managing and updating dependencies in a controlled manner.

It is important to regularly update dependencies to ensure security and improve project performance. However, before updating, always check if the new versions of dependencies are compatible with your project.


pip install --upgrade <package-name>

When you run pip install --upgrade <package-name>, pip automatically updates the specified dependency to the latest version within the version constraints specified in the requirements.txt file. If there is a new version of the dependency that falls within the specified constraints, pip updates it in the requirements.txt file and installs the latest version.


pip list --outdated

To check which dependencies are outdated, you can run pip list --outdated. This command compares the installed versions of dependencies with the latest available versions and displays the outdated dependencies along with their current, desired, and latest versions.

To update all dependencies to their latest versions, you can use pip install --upgrade -r requirements.txt. This command installs the latest versions of all dependencies specified in the requirements.txt file.


pip-tools

For more control over dependency management, you can use pip-tools, which allows you to define and manage dependencies in separate files and generate a locked requirements.txt file. This ensures that your dependencies are consistently reproducible across different environments.

Remember to always review the compatibility and potential impact of updated dependencies on your project before proceeding with the updates.
