0.15.0.0

Upgrade instructions: When upgrading to 0.15.0.0 or above from a pre-0.15.0.0 version, you must re-install all packages to take advantage of the new persistent pipx metadata files introduced in this release. These metadata files store pip specification values, injected packages, any custom pip arguments, and more in each main package's venv. You can do this by running pipx reinstall-all or pipx uninstall-all, then reinstalling manually.

  • install now has no --spec option. You may specify any valid pip specification for install's main argument.
  • inject will now accept pip specifications for dependency arguments
  • Metadata is now stored for each application installed, including install options like --spec, and injected packages. This information allows upgrade, upgrade-all and reinstall-all to work properly even with non-pypi installed packages. (#222)
  • upgrade options --spec and --include-deps were removed. Pipx now uses the original options used to install each application instead. (#222)
  • upgrade-all options --include-deps, --system-site-packages, --index-url, --editable, and --pip-args were removed. Pipx now uses the original options used to install each application instead. (#222)
  • reinstall-all options --include-deps, --system-site-packages, --index-url, --editable, and --pip-args were removed. Pipx now uses the original options used to install each application instead. (#222)
  • Handle missing interpreters more gracefully (#146)
  • Change reinstall-all to use system python by default for apps. Now use --python option to specify a different python version.
  • Remove the PYTHONPATH environment variable when executing any command to prevent conflicts between pipx dependencies and package dependencies when pipx is installed via homebrew. Homebrew can use pythonpath manipulation instead of virtual environments. (#233)
  • Add printed summary after successful call to pipx inject
  • Support associating apps with Python 3.5
  • Improvements to animation status text
  • Make --python argument in reinstall-all command optional
  • Use threads on OS's without support for semaphores
  • Stricter parsing when passing -- argument as delimeter

0.14.0.0

  • Speed up operations by using shared venv for pip, setuptools, and wheel. You can see more detail in the 'how pipx works' section of the documentation. (#164, @pfmoore)
  • Breaking change: for the inject command, change --include-binaries to --include-apps
  • Change all terminology from binary to app or application
  • Improve argument parsing for pipx run and pipx runpip
  • If --force is passed, remove existing files in PIPX_BIN_DIR
  • Move animation to start of line, hide cursor when animating

0.13.2.3

  • Fix regression when installing a package that doesn't have any entry points

0.13.2.2

  • Remove unneccesary and sometimes incorrect check after pipx inject (#195)
  • Make status text/animation reliably disappear before continuing
  • Update animation symbols

0.13.2.1

  • Remove virtual environment if installation did not complete. For example, if it was interrupted by ctrl+c or if an exception occurred for any reason. (#193)

0.13.2.0

  • Add shell autocompletions. Also add pipx completions command to print instructions on how to add pipx completions to your shell.
  • Un-deprecate ensurepath. Use userpath internally instead of instructing users to run the userpath cli command.
  • Improve detection of PIPX_BIN_DIR not being on PATH
  • Improve error message when an existing symlink exists in PIPX_BIN_DIR and points to the wrong location
  • Improve handling of unexpected files in PIPX_HOME (@uranusjr)
  • swap out of order logic in order to correctly recommend --include-deps (@joshuarli)
  • [dev] Migrate from tox to nox

0.13.1.1

  • Do not raise bare exception if no binaries found (#150)
  • Update pipsi migration script

0.13.1.0

  • Deprecate ensurepath command. Use userpath append ~/.local/bin
  • Support redirects and proxies when downloading python files (i.e. pipx run http://url/file.py)
  • Use tox for document generation and CI testing (CI tests are now functional rather than static tests on style and formatting!)
  • Use mkdocs for documentation
  • Change default cache duration for pipx run from 2 to 14 days

0.13.0.1

  • Fix upgrade-all and reinstall-all regression

0.13.0.0

  • Add runpip command to run arbitrary pip commands in pipx-managed virtual environments
  • Do not raise error when running pipx install PACKAGE and the package has already been installed by pipx (#125). This is the cause of the major version change from 0.12 to 0.13.
  • Add --skip argument to upgrade-all and reinstall-all commands, to let the user skip particular packages

0.12.3.3

  • Update logic in determining a package's binaries during installation. This removes spurious binaries from the installation. (#104)
  • Improve compatibility with Debian distributions by using shutil.which instead of distutils.spawn.find_executable (#102)

0.12.3.2

  • Fix infinite recursion error when installing package such as cloudtoken==0.1.84 (#103)
  • Fix windows type errors (#96, #98)

0.12.3.1

  • Fix "WindowsPath is not iterable" bug

0.12.3.0

  • Add --include-deps argument to include binaries of dependent packages when installing with pipx. This improves compatibility with packages that depend on other installed packages, such as jupyter.
  • Speed up pipx list output (by running multiple processes in parallel) and by collecting all metadata in a single subprocess call
  • More aggressive cache directory removal when --no-cache is passed to pipx run
  • [dev] Move inline text passed to subprocess calls to their own files to enable autoformating, linting, unit testing

0.12.2.0

  • Add support for PEP 582's __pypackages__ (experimental). pipx run BINARY will first search in __pypackages__ for binary, then fallback to installing from PyPI. pipx run --pypackages BINARY will raise an error if the binary is not found in __pypackages__.
  • Fix regression when installing with --editable flag (#93)
  • [dev] improve unit tests

0.12.1.0

  • Cache and reuse temporary Virtual Environments created with pipx run (#61)
  • Update binary discovery logic to find "scripts" like awscli (#91)
  • Forward --pip-args to the pip upgrade command (previously the args were forwarded to install/upgrade commands for packages) (#77)
  • When using environment variable PIPX_HOME, Virtual Environments will now be created at $PIPX_HOME/venvs rather than at $PIPX_HOME.
  • [dev] refactor into multiple files, add more unit tests

0.12.0.4

  • Fix parsing bug in pipx run

0.12.0.3

  • list python2 as supported language so that pip installs with python2 will no longer install the pipx on PyPI from the original pipx owner. Running pipx with python2 will fail, but at least it will not be as confusing as running the pipx package from the original owner.

0.12.0.2

  • forward arguments to run command correctly #90

0.12.0.1

  • stop using unverified context #89

0.11.0.1

  • add version check, command check, fix printed version update installation instructions

0.11.0.0

  • Replace pipx BINARY with pipx run BINARY to run a binary in an ephemeral environment. This is a breaking API change so the major version has been incremented. (Issue #69)
  • upgrade pip when upgrading packages (Issue #72)
  • support --system-site-packages flag (Issue #64)

0.10.4.1

  • Fix version printed when pipx --version is run

  • Avoid accidental execution of pipx.main
