Using the Setuptools Command¶
This library extends the setuptools utility by defining a single new command called requirements. This command installs your package’s dependencies identified by the setup_requires keyword passed to setuptools.setup() without installing the project in development mode.
$ virtualenv -q env $ env/bin/python setup.py requirements
The requirements command supports a number of command line options that are passed through to the underlying pip install execution.
- --index-url URL¶
Use URL as the Python Package Index instead of the default (https://pypi.python.org/simple).
Fetch additional packages by extracting the links from URL. If URL refers to a directory (via a file:// URL), then the contents of the directory are used.
Do not find or prefer wheel archives when searching indexes and find-links locations.
Include pre-release and development versions. By default, only stable versions are installed.
Install dependencies listed in the tests_require keyword passed to setuptools.setup().
- --install-extra-requirements EXTRA¶
Install the extras_require dependencies associated with EXTRA.
Since the requirements command uses pip to perform the installation, you can use any of the pip configuration files.
