Mocking you since 2016

Project Description

Ever did a mistake to ``pip install`` in the terminal when installing
packages from ``requirements.txt`` file like following?


$ pip install requirements.txt
Collecting requirements.txt
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement requirements.txt (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for requirements.txt

Now you wont. Thanks to some nasty hacks and tricks there is a package
on PyPI that handles that. It finds the desired requirements file and
installs it in your current environment.


echo "gevent" > requirements-dev.txt
pip install requirements-dev.txt

This package was made only for trolling so do not expect it to work. It
may work on Linux and Mac OS X but was not extensively tested. It is
also a one-shot trick so no updates will be installed once you do that
unless you specify a ``-U`` or ``--update`` switch. Happy debugging!

PyPI (fortunately) does not allow to upload package named
``requirements.txt`` so the only supported name is currently a
``requirements-dev.txt``. It still should be quite popular though.
