class aiida.plugins.PluginVersionProviderΒΆ

Utility class that determines version information about a given plugin resource.

Initialization

property logger: logging.LoggerΒΆ
get_version_info(plugin: str | type) dict[Any, dict[Any, Any]]ΒΆ

Get the version information for a given plugin.

Note

This container will keep a cache, so if this method was already called for the given plugin before for this instance, the result computed at the last invocation will be returned.

Parameters:

plugin – A class, function, or an entry point string. If the type is string, it will be assumed to be an entry point string and the class will attempt to load it first. It should be a full entry point string, including the entry point group.

Returns:

Dictionary with the version.core and optionally version.plugin if it could be determined.

Raises:
  • EntryPointError – If plugin is a string but could not be loaded as a valid entry point.

  • TypeError – If plugin (or the resource pointed to it in the case of an entry point) is not a class or a function.
