An easy way to manage development and procution dependecies.

Project description

Dependency Manager

current :green_heart: license python

:heart_eyes: First full released version is finally here! :heart_eyes:

Dependency Manager comes to resolve the lack of a good development/production dependency management in python pip daily use.

With this tool you're gonna be able to add development and production dependencies to your project in separeted. Once the package can exports all requirements to a file in particular without losing any compatibility with who only use pip. Also it differentiates packages which your project is directly dependent on, from its dependency tree.

Getting Started

# you can install it globaly
sudo pip install dependencymanager
## this way you're gonna have dependencymanager globaly to use in all your projects

# or

# localy, but remembet to add it as development dependency ;)
pip install virtualenv
virtualenv --python=python3 .virenv
source .virenv/bin/activate

pip install dependencymanager
python -m dependecymanager init
python -m dependecymanager move --name=dependencymanager
python -m dependecymanager export
## this way dependency manager will be contained in a specify project,
## and will be installed only in development environment.
## if you want it not to stay in production, just do execute the 'move' command.


Command Description

i - install Install the project or an specific dependecy
u - uninstall Uninstall required package and its dependency. Maintaining possible cross dependencies with other packages, moving them if necessary, and updating the tree.
f - info Get info about the requested pack.
m - move Move package between environments, production for developer and vice versa.
mh - makehead Make the given package head. That is, the project is now directly dependent on this package.

As the package is still not fully released there are two things you might want to consider:

  • Dependency Manager still does not supports locally installed packages. It's a rare but possible case of use for pip. So if you, for any reason, need to deal with this kind of approach in your project, Dependency Manager is still not the tool for you. Although adding such support is fairly easy from the point we are, and this will be present in a future full release version.
  • The package craetes 3 files in you'r current directory: dmtree.json, requirements.txt and dev_requirements.txt. There's still not how to custom these names, Although adding such feature is fairly easy too, and will be present in a future full release.
