Standalone Script

Normally, verchew is installed using pip, but given the variety of environments in which this program is run, you might be in a situation where pip:

  • is not installed
  • does not have the correct permissions to install verchew
  • does not have network access to PyPI

For this reason, verchew can also be embedded into your project as a standalone Python script.


After cloning this repository, build the script for distribution:

$ make dist


In your project:

  1. Create a bin/ directory: $ mkdir -p bin
  2. Copy the script: $ cp ../verchew/dist/verchew bin/verchew
  3. Ensure the script is executable: $ chmod a+x bin/verchew

An example of this can be seen here.
