Snyk for Python

What type of Python projects does Snyk support?

Snyk supports testing and monitoring Python projects that have their dependencies managed by pip and expressed in a requirements.txt file. Python support for requirements.txt files is available for GitHub, Bitbucket Server, GitLab repositories, and via the Snyk CLI.

Snyk also supports testing and monitoring Python projects that have their dependencies managed by pipenv and expressed in a Pipfile file. Python support for Pipfile files is available via the Snyk CLI.

Testing Python projects

We scan Python projects by examining your requirements.txt or Pipfile file to compare the specific versions of every direct and deep dependency in your project against our Python vulnerability database.
