Ideas to improve my pip workflow

  • Generate a true list of deps from top-level deps using pip-compile.
  • Rebuild virtual envs automatically based on the actual requirements file(s) (possibly using pip-sync).
  • Backup all dependencies in binary form:

    pip install –download DIR -r requirements.txt

    To install them again:

    pip install –no-index –find-links=[file://]DIR -r requirements.txt

  • Run the backup process automatically, via a git hook.
