Dependabot now supports pip-compile

If you use pip-tools to manage your Python dependencies, Dependabot will now keep your files up-to-date, too, and ensure your dependencies are always compatible.

We've had Python support in Dependabot for almost a year now, and support for Pipenv since December. Adding support for pip-compile is just the latest step in making it perfect, and should be great for those who haven't jumped on the Pipenv bandwagon yet.

If there's ever anything you think we can do better with Dependabot please don't hesitate to get in touch. We're always keen to hear your feedback.


Dependabot helps keep your dependencies up-to-date. It's free for personal accounts and open source, and always will be.
