    The Python package installer

    Project mention: Can't seem to install Python YAML support | /r/Ubuntu | 2023-08-29

    $ sudo pip install y$ sudo pip install yaml WARNING: pip is being invoked by an old script wrapper. This will fail in a future version of pip. Please see for advice on fixing the underlying issue. To avoid this problem you can invoke Python with '-m pip' instead of running pip directly. ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement yaml (from versions: none) ERROR: No matching distribution found for yaml

  • pip-tools

    A set of tools to keep your pinned Python dependencies fresh.

    Project mention: Maintaining virtual environments | /r/learnpython | 2023-05-18

    For small projects I recommend pip-tools. Just write packet list in and pip-compile compile a requirements.txt with comments.

  • PDM

    A modern Python package and dependency manager supporting the latest PEP standards

    Project mention: A question about good practice when using docker. | /r/dataengineering | 2023-05-26

    You'd need a proper dependencies management tool like PDM or Poetry to exhaustively resolve and lock down all the transitive dependencies if you want to have anything closed to reproducible build.

    Project mention: Rez package manager alternatives | /r/vfx | 2023-07-07

    Project mention: How to improve Python packaging, or why 14 tools are at least 12 too many | | 2023-01-15

    I don't agree with all the points from the article, but I do agree there is a depth of learning to be had about creating packages (and doing it repeatably/scalably). I wrote a book about creating Python packages that just came out:

    Even this book doesn't cover all options in each area, and it skips almost wholly over conda because I have no personal experience using it. conda and the work in the scientific community adds complexity both to the creation and the consumption side of packaging, and that's one area I'm not sure this post covers all the nuance of when considering how a "one size fits all" solution might work in practice.

  • pacwatch

    A pacman wrapper which helps you watch important package updates.
