Provide an endpoint to query installed python package versions

Project description

> Provide an endpoint to query installed python package versions



  1. Install the package:

    pip install django-version-endpoint
  2. Install the application by adding it to the INSTALLED_APPS setting:

    INSTALLED_APPS += ('version_endpoint',)
  3. Set the package names, you’re interested in:

  4. Add the url to your

    from django.conf.urls import include
    urlpatterns += url(r'^', include('version_endpoint.urls'))



You can call the “versions” endpoint to get the information about the installed package versions.

Request a content type of “application/json” and a dictionary is returned:

    'versions': {
        'all': '1.1',
        'interesting': '2.2',
        'packages': '3.3'
    'host': 'hostname'

Otherwise a rendered html page is returned.


The versions endpoint can get a single package name as well to specifically return the mentioned package’s version.

Overwriting the template

In order to overwrite the html template for your needs, just create a template called “version_endpoint.html” in your project, that’s retrieved before the default one of the application. For example with the standard template loader and directory in the project’s folder under a “templates” folder. You can use the dictionary mentioned above as context for the template.

If you want to override the html response for the single package endpoint, you can do the same for the “version_endpoint_single.html” template.
