Updating poetry package manager from 1.1 to 1.2 1.3 or above
Normally we can just update our poetry version like this
poetry self update
But not if you have poetry < 1.1 version
If you look at the poetry documentation there’s this warning
Poetry 1.1 series releases are not able to update in-place to 1.2 or newer series releases. To migrate to newer releases, uninstall using your original install method, and then reinstall using the methods above.
How to uninstall
Uninstall the poetry version first. It depends on how you install it before. I personally forget how I Install it , but I look at my zsh config file where is my poetry located, and I manually delete that folder.
Tips if you can’t uninstall it:
- find where your poetry located
- delete the folder manually
Reinstall current poetry version
You may want to refer to official poetry doc for this.
But here’s what I did:
// Install latest stable poetry curl -sSL https://install.python-poetry.org | python3 -
Add Poetry to your PATH
The installer creates a poetry wrapper in a well-known, platform-specific directory:
$HOME/.local/bin on Unix. %APPDATA%\Python\Scripts on Windows. $POETRY_HOME/bin if $POETRY_HOME is set.
Check poetry is installed
