Package Documentation

Tools for packaging.


A distutils command for reporting the dependency tree as resolved by setuptools. Use after installing a package.


A distutils command for reporting the attributes of a distribution, such as the version or author name. Here are some examples against this package:

$ python -q show
jaraco.packaging 2.8.2.dev1+nfaae9fb96b36.d20151127
$ python -q show --attributes version
$ python -q show --attributes author,author_email
"Jason R. Coombs"
$ python -q show --attributes classifiers
"['Development Status :: 5 - Production/Stable', 'Intended Audience :: Developers', 'License :: OSI Approved :: MIT License', 'Programming Language :: Python :: 2.7', 'Programming Language :: Python :: 3']"
$ python -q show --attributes "description url"
"tools to supplement packaging Python releases"

Note that passing -q suppresses the “running show” message.

Attributes may be specified as comma-separated or space-separated keys. Results are printed using subprocess.list2cmdline so may be parsed using shlex.split. By default, ‘name’ and ‘version’ are printed.
