Depending on prawcore

prawcore follows semantic versioning with the exception that deprecations will not be preceded by a minor release. In essense, expect only major versions to introduce breaking changes to prawcore’s public interface. As a result, if you depend on prawcore then it is a good idea to specify not only the minimum version of prawcore your package requires, but to also limit the major version.

Below are two examples of how you may want to specify your prawcore dependency:

      install_requires=['prawcore >=0.1, <1'],


prawcore >=1.5.1, <2
