pip – Check avaiable Python package version

It’s quite common to check the available versions of a Python package before installing it. The yolk3k package is a very convenient command line tool for querying PyPI and Python packages. yolk3k is a fork of the original yolk and it adds Python 3 support while maintaining Python 2 support.


1. Install the yolk3k package.

pip install yolk3k


2. Start querying the available version of the django package.

yolk -V django


Another way to list the available version is to browse pypi.python.org online.

  • https://pypi.python.org/simple/<package-name>/


For example:


Done =)
