This command is used to manage packages installed in a global, cross-project
scope. Globally installed packages can be used with
This command can also be used to manage Nitrile versions.
The following commands can be performed:
install: installs a new (version of a) package in the global scope.
list: lists all currently installed packages.
remove: removes a package from the global scope.
nitrile global install PACKAGE [VERSION]¶
Installs a package globally. If
VERSION is not specified, the latest version
known to the registry will be installed.
You should run
nitrile update beforehand to have an up to date
copy of the registry.
Installing a package globally does not install any dependencies. The reason
for this is that
nitrile run allows dependencies to be installed
both locally and globally. Therefore, at the moment a global package is
installed, nitrile does not know whether the dependencies should be installed
locally or globally.
nitrile global list¶
Lists globally installed packages and their versions.
nitrile global remove PACKAGE VERSION¶
Removes the globally installed version
