Pip discovery

January 25, 2012

I just discovered this awesome command:


pip freeze > requirements.txt


Yes, that’s right.  pip freeze dumps out all the packages you have installed (with their version!!).  So if you have a virtualenv perfectly set up and you want to make a requirements file for your projects, just run that and you’re done.  No more forgotten pip packages, no more mismatched versions on new deployments.
