Find packages that should be in requirements for a project
It happens: you start using a module in your project and it works and you don’t realise that it’s only being included in your virtualenv because it’s a dependency of a package you’re using. This tool finds those modules so you can include them in the requirements.txt for the project.
Assuming your project follows a layout like the suggested sample project:
setup.py setup.cfg requirements.txt sample/__init__.py sample/sample.py sample/tests/test_sample.py
Basic usage, running in your project directory:
<activate virtualenv for your project> pip-missing-reqs --ignore-files=sample/tests/* sample
This will find all imports in the code in “sample” and check that the packages those modules belong to are in the requirements.txt file.
Sample tox.ini configuration
To make your life easier, copy something like this into your tox.ini:
[pip-missing-reqs] deps=-rrequirements.txt commands=pip-missing-reqs --ignore-files=sample/tests/* sample
Excluding test files (or others) from this check
Your test files will sometimes be present in the same directory as your application source (“sample” in the above examples). The requirements for those tests generally should not be in the requirements.txt file, and you don’t want this tool to generate false hits for those.
You may exclude those test files from your check using the –ignore-files option.
Excluding modules from the check
If your project has modules which are conditionally imported, or requirements which are conditionally included, you may exclude certain modules from the check by name (or glob pattern) using –ignore-mods:
# ignore the module spam pip-missing-reqs --ignore-mods=spam sample # ignore the whole package spam as well pip-missing-reqs --ignore-mods=spam --ignore-mods=spam.* sample
