Best practice for communicating dependencies (in python)

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi everybody,

 

I am about to start a project in python which uses a couple dependecies and I was wondering if there is best practice when it comes to communicating and handling these dependencies. Are they in general just written down in a file or is the best approach to write a script that sets up the needed environment and the dependencies?

 

Thank you for your help

A couple of possibilities: Create a requirements.txt file, or use pipenv to manage a virtual environment.

Hi @WatKey,

 

Welcome to the Github Community Forum!

 

When you develop a python project is necessary to use some sort of virtual environment. I wrote a couple weeks ago some notes about venv and reproducibility to mantain and share a pyhton project: pip venv.

 

Hope this help, ask if you have more questions.
