Rye. Armin Ronacher’s take on a Python packaging tool. There are a lot of interesting ideas in this one—it’s written in Rust, configured using pyproject.toml and has some very strong opinions, including completely hiding pip from view and insisting you use “rye add package” instead. Notably, it doesn’t use the system Python at all: instead, it downloads a pre-compiled standalone Python from Gregory Szorc’s python-build-standalone project—the same approach I used for the Datasette Desktop Electron app.
Armin warns that this is just an exploration, with no guarantees of future maintenance—and even has an issue open titled “Should Rye exist?”
