VersionEye 2.0 started with only 3 languages. Ruby, NodeJS and PHP. Now Python was added as well!
VersionEye supports the package manger PIP. You can simply upload your requirements.txt file to get a BOM (Bill of Materials). By default the ‘requirements.txt’ file contains only the direct dependencies. I would recommend to use Pips freeze feature to lock down all transitive dependencies. That can be achieved with this command:
python -m pip freeze > frozen-requirements.txt
That command will take all direct dependencies from the
requirements.txt file, resolve all transitive dependencies and create a new file
frozen-requirements.txt which contains ALL (direct & transitive) dependencies with fixed versions. That’s much better then the pure
requirements.txt file because the frozen version contains all dependencies which are shipped to production. That contains ALL dependencies which are necessary to run the application.
Here is an example for a Python VersionEye scan:
