Checks for out-of-date package versions
luddite checks if pinned versions in your requirements.txt file have newer versions in the package index. It’s great to be near the cutting edge, but not so close that you get cut! This tool will help you keep things up to date manually.
There are many ways to specify requirements in those files, but luddite’s parsing is pretty dumb and simple: we’re only looking for package==version pins. It won’t break on lines that aren’t fitting this format, but you’ll have to check them manually.
luddite works on both Python 2 and Python 3.
pip install luddite
If you are in the same directory as the requirements.txt file, you can just type luddite.
