I initially installed a version of python-git (GitPython) on my machine. It was version 0.1. Then I used pip to upgrade it to the latest. Now I was looking for the appropriate docs and fell unsure of which version I actually installed. So how to find the version of the installed python package?

Yes, pip can show list of packages installed and versions.

pip list


amqp (1.4.6)
beautifulsoup4 (4.3.2)
caniusepython3 (2.2.0)
certifi (14.05.14)
coverage (3.7.1)

You can use

pip list | grep -i package

package name could be segment of the package name and is case insensitive.


package (0.0.0)

the red highlight shows your search criteria.

Usually a command line like this does it on UNIX:

  ls /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages|grep -i packagename

All eggs live in site-packages folder and they have version number in their folder / .egg file name.

Your question lacks operating system details and what Python was used to install, so it is not possible to give the exact answer.
