Pipenv/setup.py dependency comparison tool
pipenv-devcheck is a command-line utility for helping python package developers
ensure that their development environments match what they are expecting of
their users' environments.
At Neighborhoods, some developers utilize Pipenv as a dependency management system during development, allowing for assurance that an entire development team is working with an identical environment. While Pipenv is an extremely helpful development tool, it is not an all-in-one solution to development challenges.
When a user installs a python package, for example, the dependencies they
need are specified not in Pipenv's
Pipfile, but in
setup.py. As a result,
it is possible for a developer to change the dependencies they are using
without reflecting those changes in the environment expected for package usage.
pipenv-devcheck is a lightweight command-line tool to check for such mistakes.
If a project is found to have discrepancies between the development and user
environments, an error is thrown, allowing for detection by CI tools. While
simple in nature, this check can prevent annoying issues such as revising a
package release to update requirements, or developers having difficulty
with helping users debug due to a hidden environment difference.
After installation, simply run
pipenv-devcheck at the root of a package
via the command line to use!
This tool is not designed to check for implicit compatibility issues between package versions. It will only check if the version numbers specified in a package's dependency files theoretically are compatible. Please consult the source of the individual packages if implicit compatibility issues arise.
