The simple project package manager

Project description

Mr Piper 🎻🐍 - Super simple project package manager
=====================================================

---------------

Heavily inspired by `yarn <https://yarnpkg.com/en/docs/cli/>`_, Piper offers a dead simple way to manage a project's dependencies (and more).

Piper uses pip and virtualenv under the hood, and (just like NPM and Yarn) always installs packages in a project isolated environment.

Piper makes it easy to make modules installable (and updatable) via a `piper.json` JSON file, instead of fiddling with `setup.py`.

🤔 Why?
-----------

- No need to jump through countless hoops to get a test project going ☺️ (with proper package management)
- Keep your environment nice and clean ✨, with auto-removal of unnecessary components
- It's easy to make reproducible environments for your CI and deployments (no more "it-works-on-my-machine" syndrome)
- Easily make installable modules, no more :code:`setup.py` fiddling
- Piper increases usefulness of some basic pip commands (e.g. check out :code:`piper list`, :code:`piper outdated`)
- A bunch of convenient utilities are included (e.g. :code:`piper why`)
- Easy install from Github (e.g. :code:`piper add requests/requests`)
- Effortlessly keep your project version and git tags updated

A star makes the developers happy 😊

---------------

**Initialize project** :code:`piper init`

e.g. :code:`piper init --py 3.6 --outside`

Initializing a project creates:

- the PIP requirement files (base, dev and frozen lock files)
- the virtualenv (either outside or inside the project folder)
- a Piper file (where project information is stored)
- a Piper lock (where the reproducible working project configuration is stored)
- a working setup.py
