Using pip, is it possible to figure out which version of a package is currently installed?
I know about
pip install XYZ --upgrade but I am wondering if there is anything like
pip info XYZ. If not what would be the best way to tell what version I am currently using.
As of pip 1.3, there is a
pip show command.
$ pip show Jinja2 --- Name: Jinja2 Version: 2.7.3 Location: /path/to/virtualenv/lib/python2.7/site-packages Requires: markupsafe
In older versions,
pip freeze and
grep should do the job nicely.
$ pip freeze | grep Jinja2 Jinja2==2.7.3
