Poetry is a tool for dependency management and packaging in Python. It allows you to declare the libraries your project depends on and it will manage (install/update) them for you.

Install packages

The install command reads the pyproject.toml file from the current project, resolves the dependencies, and installs them.

poetry install

You can specify to the command that you don't want the development dependencies installed by passing the --no-dev option.

poetry install --no-dev

Add packages

The add command adds required packages to your pyproject.toml and installs them.

poetry add requests pendulum

Export requirements.txt

This command exports the lock file to requirements.txt format

poetry export -f requirements.txt --output requirements.txt

You can specify to the command that you also want the development dependencies by passing the --dev option, and exclude hashes from exported files by passing --without-hashes.

poetry export -f requirements.txt --dev --without-hashes --output requirements.txt
