Tool for quickly uninstalling python packages.

Project description

Pipurge is a tool that allows you to quickly uninstall Python packages, at system level or in a virtualenv.


Basic usage:

$ pipurge

  There are 23 packages to uninstall. Proceed? [y/N]: y

    Successfully uninstalled aiodns-1.1.1

  Uninstalling aiohttp-2.2.5:

You can also use the –keep option to specify certain packages to keep installed. Pipurge will also keep the dependencies of the packages you specify so they stay working.

If you’d like further control over the process, use the –ask option and Pipurge will ask you whether to uninstall each package that’s left.

$ pipurge --keep requests,flask --ask
