pipdate is a collection of small pip update helpers. The command

# or python3.9 -m pipdate

updates all your pip-installed packages. (Only works on Unix.)

There's a Python interface as well that can be used for update notifications. This

import pipdate

pipdate.check("matplotlib", "0.4.5")

will print

This can, for example, be used by package authors to notify users of upgrades of their own packages.

If you guard the check with

import pipdate

if pipdate.needs_checking("matplotlib"):
    print(pipdate.check("matplotlib", "0.4.5"), end="")

then it will be performed at most every k seconds, where k is specified in the config file $HOME/.config/pipdate/config.ini, e.g., once a day

pipdate is available from the Python Package Index, so simply type

pip install pipdate
