Package manager that compliments Docker-based workflows
Pipflow is built for developers who deploy their Python software using Docker and Cloud Native technologies. When building docker images our constraints are:
- The more slim the image, the better.
- The less image layers, the better.
- Don't reinvent the wheel by installing a new package manager in your Dockerfile. These tools tend to use lock files, which are fine in general, but in Docker they are redundant because we already have a way to pin dependencies: Docker image layers.
This leave us with one option: Continue to use plain old
pip, but create some new workflows that improve the
For example, Pipflow replaces this workflow:
$ pip3 install <new-package> $ pip3 freeze | grep <new-package> >> requirements.txt $ docker build ... # (A redudant install)
$ pipflow add <package>
pipflow on your HOST OS only (macOS, Windows, Linux etc). Do not add Pipflow to your
pip3 install pipflow
Add a new package
pipflow add <package-name>
Remove a package
pipflow remove <package-name>
Upgrade a package version
pipflow upgrade <package-name>
Upgrade all packages
Vew all packages eligible for upgrade
