Inspect Python package dependencies

Project description

Dependente: Inspect Python package dependencies

Part of the Fatiando a Terra project

Latest release on PyPI Latest release on conda-forge Test coverage report Compatible Python versions

About

Dependente is a small command-line program for extracting dependencies from Python project files (pyproject.toml and setup.cfg) and converting them into requirements.txt-type files for use with pip and conda.

The main reason to do so is to control and customize the testing environment on continuous integration (CI) while avoiding repeating the list of dependencies in multiple places.

This project was inspired by some of the GitHub Actions configuration of the MetPy project.

Installing

Dependente is available from PyPI:

python -m pip install dependente

and conda-forge:

conda install dependente -c conda-forge

Using

In these examples, we'll parse the dependencies from Pooch.

Parse the install (run-time) dependencies from setup.cfg:

$ dependente > requirements.txt
Extracting dependencies: install
Parsing setup.cfg
  - 3 dependencies found
Printing 3 dependencies to standard output
Done!

$ cat requirements.txt
# Install (run-time) dependencies from setup.cfg
appdirs>=1.3.0
packaging>=20.0
requests>=2.19.0

Also read the build dependencies from pyproject.toml and extra dependencies from setup.cfg:

$ dependente --source install,build,extras > requirements-all.txt
Extracting dependencies: install,build,extras
Parsing setup.cfg
  - 6 dependencies found
Parsing pyproject.toml
  - 3 dependencies found
Printing 9 dependencies to standard output
Done!

$ cat requirements-all.txt
# Extra (optional) dependencies from setup.cfg
#   extra: progress
tqdm>=4.41.0,<5.0.0
#   extra: sftp
paramiko>=2.7.0
#   extra: xxhash
xxhash>=1.4.3
# Install (run-time) dependencies from setup.cfg
appdirs>=1.3.0
packaging>=20.0
requests>=2.19.0
# Build dependencies from pyproject.toml
setuptools>=45
wheel
setuptools_scm[toml]>=6.2

Pin the dependencies to their oldest supported version (useful for testing in CI):

$ dependente --source install,extras --oldest > requirements-oldest.txt
Extracting dependencies: install,extras
Parsing setup.cfg
  - 6 dependencies found
Pinning dependencies to their oldest versions
Printing 6 dependencies to standard output
Done!

$ cat requirements-oldest.txt
# Extra (optional) dependencies from setup.cfg
#   extra: progress
tqdm==4.41.0
#   extra: sftp
paramiko==2.7.0
#   extra: xxhash
xxhash==1.4.3
# Install (run-time) dependencies from setup.cfg
appdirs==1.3.0
packaging==20.0
requests==2.19.0

Usage: dependente [OPTIONS]

  Dependente: Inspect Python package dependencies

  Reads from the configuration files in the current directory and outputs to
  stdout a list of dependencies into a format accepted by pip.

  Supported formats:

  * pyproject.toml (only build-system > requires)

  * setup.cfg (install_requires and options.extras_require)

Options:
  -s, --source TEXT            Which sources of dependency information to
                               extract. Can be any combination of
                               'install,extras,build'.  [default: install]
  -o, --oldest                 If enabled, will pin dependencies to the oldest
                               accepted version.  [default: False]
  -v, --verbose / -q, --quiet  Print information during execution / Don't
                               print  [default: verbose]
  --version                    Show the version and exit.
  -h, --help                   Show this message and exit.

Limitations

The current implementation is a proof-of-concept and has some limitations:

  • Input files must be in the current working directory.
  • Reads all extra dependencies simultaneously (can't separate between different option.extras_requires fields).
  • Only supports reading from setup.cfg and pyproject.toml (build dependencies only).

Of course, all of these could be addressed if there is enough interest. Issues and PRs are welcome!

Dependencies

We use the following dependencies (see setup.cfg for specific version constraints):

  • click for building the command-line interface.
  • tomli to parse the TOML configuration files.
