Display installed pip packages and their update status..

Project description

pip-check gives you a quick overview of all installed packages and their update status. Under the hood it calls pip list --outdated --format=columns and transforms it into a more user friendly table.


Requires pip Version 9 or higher!


pip install pip-check


$ pip-check

# If your terminal does not support the table lines,
# you can show an ASCII table
$ pip-check --ascii

# You can specify the pip executable
$ pip-check --cmd=pip3

# List only packages that are not dependencies of installed packages.
$ pip-check --not-required

# Some packages have ridiculous long versions. To admire them:
$ pip-check --full-version

# Do not show packages where their version is up to date:
$ pip-check --hide-unchanged

# Show the pip command to update all major/minor packages
$ pip-check --show-update


v2.3.2 (2018-02-18):
  • New --show-update argument.
  • Fixed --full-versions argument.
  • Minor UI improvements.
v2.1 (2018-02-18):
  • Complete new architecture. It now calls pip directly and parses it output which should be more reliable.
  • It’s also using distutils for the version comparision now, which is more reliable as well.
  • Lots of features and bug fixes.
v0.2 (2016-02-09):
  • Fixes issues with older pip versions.
  • Truncates extremly long version numbers.
v0.1 (2016-02-06):
  • Very first version, and yet with very limited features.
