tl.eggdeps


Deutsche Fassung

The «eggdeps» tool analyses dependencies between installed Python eggs. (Eggs are a distribution format for Python software.) It computes a directed graph which describes direct as well as optional package dependencies.

The program's output is either a text representation of the graph, a list of egg requirement specifications or an input file for the Graphviz tools which draw an image of the graph.

As a simple example, eggdeps represents the dependencies of the zope.component package as follows:

  Example: dependencies of zope.component
zope.component
    setuptools
    zope.deferredimport
        setuptools
        zope.proxy
            setuptools
            zope.interface ...
    zope.deprecation
        setuptools
    zope.event
        setuptools
    zope.interface
        setuptools
