Can I add comments to a pip requirements file?

328

I’d like to add comments for a few packages in a pip requirements file. (Just to explain why that package is on the list.) Can I do this?

I’m imagining something like

Babel==0.9.5 # translation
CherryPy==3.2.0 # web server
Creoleparser==0.7.1 # wiki formatting
Genshi==0.5.1 # templating

    Sure, you can, just use #

    pip docs:

    A line that begins with # is treated as a comment and ignored. Whitespace followed by a # causes the # and the remainder of the line to be treated as a comment.
