Rye picks and ships the right tools so you can get started in minutes:

  • Bootstraps Python: it provides an automated way to get access to the amazing Indygreg Python Builds as well as the PyPy binary distributions.

  • Managing Virtualenvs: it uses the well established virtualenv library under the hood.
  • Building Wheels: it delegates that work largely to build.
  • Publishing: its publish command uses twine to accomplish this task.
  • Locking and Dependency Installation: is today implemented by using uv with a fallback to unearth and pip-tools.
  • Workspace support: Rye lets you work with complex projects consisting of multiple libraries.
