Checks pinned versions with overrides in a cascaded buildout
- Output explained
- Source Code and Contributions
- Checks buildouts ``[versions]`` sections while stepping through the cascaded extends
- command line script collects the inherited version pins, remembers where a version pin comes from.
- It displays the result in order to enable a human to check that pins and overrides are OK.
- Output is colored; this helps to identify packages which have newer versions available.
- Machine readable output as JSON on demand.
- Checks Python Package Index (PyPI) for newer versions.
- Detects if a newer major, minor or bugfix (or a prerelease) is available.
- Buildout extension records the current versions state and requirements
- versions state and requirements are written to a file,
- versions from the file will be consumed by the command line tool
- orphaned version pins are detected,
- it shows which package pulled in another package as dependency.
Add a section to install it as a script and add it as an extension to your builodut:
[buildout] ... extensions = plone.versioncheck parts = ... ploneversioncheck ... ... [ploneversioncheck] recipe = zc.recipe.egg eggs = plone.versioncheck ...
Run buildout as usual.
Now a file .plone.versioncheck.tracked.json was generated in the buildout-directory.
This file will be used by bin/versioncheck to figure out which packages were finally used.
Run buildout again to regenerate this file.

If the script was used with the --pypi option, a directory .plone.versioncheck.cache will be created. It contains the cache of the requests to PyPI or external buildout configuration files. To clear the cache, remove the directory. The caching library uses the expiration headers of the response from PyPI, so even with cache it starts fetching new records.
If the extension was used, a file .plone.versioncheck.tracked.json will be created. It contains the information from last buildout run.
- [D]evelopment Egg
- A development egg is usually active. Description shows location. Color: Green
- [A]ctive Pin
- Pinned version. Package is used and recent, all seems fine. Color: White
- [I]nherited Pin
- Unused pin. If older than active, the pin color is gray; if newer, it is yellow.
- If tracked, it shows whether the package in the given configuration was used at all. Be careful with this information! I.e. in a development buildout file, other packages are used than in a live or continuous integration buildout! Color: Magenta
- [X] Unpinnend
- Tracked, but no pin in [versions] sections were found. Color: Red
- [U]pdate final release
- At PyPI there is a newer final version available (major, minor or bugfix). Descriptions shows on which level. Color: Cyan
- [P]rerelease update
- At PyPI there is a newer prerelease version available (major, minor or bugfix). Descriptions shows on which level. Only if there is no final release update available. Color: Blue
- [r] Required by
- If tracked and option --required-by was given, show packages this package is required by. Valid for current active/used version. Keep in mind this is based on the declared requirements, missing or implicit requirements are not covered.
- [a] Annotation
- It is possible to annotate the reason why a version was chosen. The information is parsed out of a section [versionannotations]. In this section key is the name of the package and value the text annotations to be displayed. The value can span more than one line using indent (as usal).
Order of versions is the buildout resolution order (how they are resolved by buildout in the extends chain/tree). After that, the PyPI releases are shown (major, minor, pre, then the prereleases)
Example, given in each a version of my.pkg was declared:
- buildout.cfg with my.pkg=3.0.3
- buildout.cfg extends foo.cfg with my.pkg=3.0.1
- buildout.cfg extends bar.cfg with my.pkg=2.0
- foo cfg extends baz.cfg with my.pkg=3.1
- found a newer versions at pypi
- major my.pkg=4.0
- minor my.pkg=3.2
- major prerelease my.pkg=5.1b2
Output looks like so:
my.pkg 3.0.3............... A buildout.cfg 2.0 ................ I bar.cfg 3.0.1 .............. I foo.cfg 3.1 ................ I baz.cfg 4.0 ................ U Major 3.2 ................ U Minor 5.1b2............... P Majorpre
