How to better support PIP requirements.txt

We recently pushed a new version of VersionEye online. The new version comes with an improved parser for requirements.txt files.

ImageThe new features include:

  • Comments in requirements.txt files can be handled.
  • Lines starting with http:// or https:// will be ignored.
  • Handling of entries without explicit version string.
  • pip.log file support.

Here is a simple example of an entry:

But other comparators work, too now. Like this one here:

Or in case you have only the package name, like this:

The new version can handle the pip.log file. Simply upload it or put in the URL and all the dependencies in the pip.log file will be shown.

Check it out and we’d love to hear your feedback.
