Verchew is an embeddable Python script to check the versions of your project’s system dependencies. Its only external dependency is a Python interpreter, available on macOS and most linux-based operating systems.



  • Python 2.7+ or Python 3.3+


Install verchew with pip:

$ pip install verchew

or directly from the source code:

$ git clone
$ cd verchew
$ python install


Create a configuration file (.verchew) with your project’s system dependencies:


cli = python
version = Python 3.5.


cli = R
version = R version 3.


cli = redis-server
version = Redis server v=3.2.

Run verchew to see if you have the right versions installed:

$ verchew

Checking for Python...

$ python --version
Python 3.5.0
✔ MATCHED: Python 3.5.

Checking for R...

$ R --version

✔ MATCHED: R version 3.

$ redis-server --version
Redis server v=3.2.1 sha=00000000:0 malloc=libc bits=64 build=62a67eec83b28403
✔ MATCHED: Redis server v=3.2.
