Is there a way in Python to list all installed packages and their versions?
I know I can go inside
python/Lib/site-packages and see what files and directories exist, but I find this very awkward. What I’m looking for something that is similar to
npm list i.e. npm-ls.
Now we will see solution for issue: How to list all installed packages and their versions in Python?
If you have pip install and you want to see what packages have been installed with your installer tools you can simply call this:
It will also include version numbers for the installed packages.
pip has been updated to also produce the same output as
pip freeze by calling:
The output from
pip list is formatted differently, so if you have some shell script that parses the output (maybe to grab the version number) of
freeze and want to change your script to call
list, you’ll need to change your parsing code.
