a snake that runs. execute python files without packaging or installation
python, but with running.
ferret provides a new shebang line for your python script that will install dependencies into a fresh venv - saving you the hassle of packaging and distribution. ferret lets you focus on writing just the code you need without sacrificing libraries.
- Install ferret on the target environment:
pip install ferret # Warning: this will work with a python3 venv, but not a virtualenv (as used by pipsi)
- Replace your shebang line with this:
#! /usr/bin/env ferret
- Declare your dependencies in your module’s docstring:
""" A helpful description about your module ferret: - requests == 2.18.4 """
When you run a script with ferret, it parses the file for dependency declarations, and prepares a venv to match. The environments are kept under ~/.local/ferret/venvs (you can safely delete the entire contents of that folder).
Once you’ve installed ferret, take it for a spin:
cat > just_a_script.py << EOF #! /usr/bin/env ferret """ Gets my IP from icanhazip.com ferret: - requests == 2.18.4 """ import requests response = requests.get('http://icanhazip.com') response.raise_for_status() print(response.text()) EOF chmod +x just_a_script.py ./just_a_script.py
The first time you run the script, ferret will set up a venv and install requests in it. Subsequent runs will re-use that environment.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
