Dependabot now supports Pipenv (in beta)!

Python devs: Dependabot can now help keep your Pipfile and Pipfile.lock up-to-date. 🎉

We've been excited about Pipenv since Kenneth Reitz launched it, and are really pleased to see it become an officially recommended tool on We think it can make dependency management in Python easier than in any other language.

Given the above it's about time Dependabot supported Pipenv, so starting today it does. As with all our betas we'll be improving support rapidly based on your feedback, but we're confident our Pipenv support already works well.

Want to give it a try? Just select "Python (Pipfile beta)" as the language when adding your project to Dependabot.


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