pip install version-comparator

You can also install the in-development version with:

pip install



The goal of this question is to write a software library that accepts 2 version string as input and returns whether one is greater than, equal, or less than the other. As an example: “1.2” is greater than “1.1”.


To use Distributed LRU Cache in a project:

from version_comparator import comparator

comparator.compare_versions('1.2.1', '1.2.1')


0: The version are equal
1: The version is greater then the other version
-1: The version is less than the other version


To run the all tests run:


Note, to combine the coverage data from all the tox environments run:

set PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append
PYTEST_ADDOPTS=--cov-append tox
