Bundle all pip dependencies in a single tarball

Project Description


A quick and dirty script to bundle up all Python dependencies used by a project. Best used with virtualenv.

NOTE: This script works only if all dependencies are available through PyPI. If you have private dependencies you can follow instructions provided by Armin Ronacher on his blog post Python on Wheels.


If you are on OS X and have Homebrew’s Python:

pip install pip-bundle


pip install --user pip-bundle

Then make sure to add the local pip’s bin directory to the $PATH. Since it is different on each platform, please refer to its documentation.

Otherwise, if you’re feeling a badass and want to sudo your way out, then run:

sudo pip install pip-bundle


Make sure your current directory has the requirements.txt file, then run the following command to create a file called bundle.pip-bundle:

pip-bundle create

To install the bundle then run:

pip-bundle install bundle.pip-bundle

You can also change the name of the bundle by giving it on the command line:

pip-bundle create mybundle.pip-bundle # Create
pip-bundle install mybundle.pip-bundle    # Install

And you can use an alternate name for the requirements.txt file:

pip-bundle create -r my-own-requirements.txt

NOTE: The bundle should be consumed on a similar platform to the one that produced it.
