Parses Pip requirement files

Project description

Requirements Parser Documentation Status

This is a small Python module for parsing Pip requirement files.

The goal is to parse everything in the Pip requirement file format spec.


pip install requirements-parser


Requirements parser can parse a file-like object or a text string.

>>> import requirements
>>> with open('requirements.txt', 'r') as fd:
...     for req in requirements.parse(fd):
...         print(, req.specs)
Django [('>=', '1.11'), ('<', '1.12')]
six [('==', '1.10.0')]

It can handle most if not all of the options in requirement files that do not involve traversing the local filesystem. These include:

  • editables (-e git+
  • version control URIs
  • egg hashes and subdirectories (#egg=django-haystack&subdirectory=setup)
  • extras (DocParser[PDF])
  • URLs
