What is Poetry? Poetry is a Python dependency management and packaging tool. Poetry offers a lock file for dependency management which helps pin the exact version of libraries the project needs so the correct library stack is used wherever the project is installed. Poetry has a system requirement of Python 3.7+.
How is it different from the PIP tool? Poetry is built on top of another popular Python dependency management tool - PIP and extends PIP’s feature set.
