Upgrade all your outdated requirements in a single command.

Project description
[![Current version on PyPI](](

Upgrade all your outdated `requirements.txt` in a single command.


Even though `pip list --outdated` exists, sometimes you just want to
run `pip install --upgrade` to upgrade a package, then persist it to
your `requirements.txt` in one big sweep.


$ pip install upgrade-requirements


$ upgrade-requirements

(Or use the shortcut command `upreq`.)

Now's a good time to grab a ☕ while it runs.

After it finishes, run your tests to make sure an individual upgrade didn't
break anything. Then move on to bigger things 🚀

#### Found a problem with an upgraded version?

No worries!

1. Revert individual entries in `requirements.txt` with the help of git
2. Run `pip install -r requirements.txt` to downgrade to working versions
3. Commit the upgraded-and-tweaked `requirements.txt` like normal and carry on 🎉

#### More usages
$ upgrade-requirements -h

usage: upgrade-requirements [-h] [-r REQUIREMENTS]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
specify the location of the requirements.txt file

Room for improvement

- This only work with pinned (`==`) packages at the moment. The intention is to
get it to work more generally. This can be broken down into three sub-tasks:

- Get it to ignore non-pinned requirements instead of fail
- Get it to work with other specifiers, e.g. `>=` (how would this work?)
- Handle all types of requirement entries

Feel free to open an issue or PR with ideas.
