autoupgrade-ng 0.3.0

Automatic upgrade of PyPI packages

Quick Start

from autoupgrade import Package
Package(<packagename>).smartupgrade()

Example:

from autoupgrade import Package
Package('pip').smartupgrade()

The above will upgrade the Python package pip only if there is a new version available on the PyPI. The upgrade will be unattended and the python script will be restarted.

Old methods are still supported; you can accomplish the same task calling:

from autoupgrade import AutoUpgrade
AutoUpgrade('pip').upgrade_if_needed()

Installation

pip install autoupgrade-ng

All the modules will be installed under the autoupgrade package, so make sure you have already removed the old AutoUpgrade package (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/autoupgrade) before install this to avoid an installation conflict.
