Compare python package requirements across packages.

Project description


Compare python package requirements across packages by reading the specified requirements files.


Clone this repository:

$ git clone


$ python install


reqchecker gathers requirements by using a .json file formatted as:

  "default": {
    "source": {"package": "path",
               "package": "path"}

  "my-home": {
    "source": {"package": "path",
               "package": "path"}

  "my-github": {
    "github": {"package": "branch",
               "package": "branch",
               "package": "branch"},
    "credentials": "<path_to_credentials.json>"

A default field is required, additional sections, in this case my-local and my-github can be added and called from the command line.

  • source can be ‘local’ or ‘github’

    If ‘local’, must supply ‘path’ to repository
    If ‘github’, must also include ‘credentials’ and path to a credentials.json file

The credentials.json file looks like:

  "user": "github_user",
  "token": "github_token"

To use by calling the "defaults" section:

$ reqchecker

To change the section to read from the saved settings in "my-home":

$ reqchecker --section my-home

The user can also overwrite sections by including –packages and –locations with the my-home option, and –packages and –branches with the github option.

To call using a different .json than is in this repository:

$ reqcheckert --file <file>
