[BUG] Grayskull allows recipes with _ when name should have -

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

Underscores vs. dashes:


grayskull pypi slack_sdk

generates a recipe named slack_sdk, even though the PyPi package name is slack-sdk.

Expected behavior

An error message that the name slack_sdk doesn’t correspond to a PyPi package.


{% set name = "slack_sdk" %}
{% set version = "3.6.0" %}


  • grayskull --version 0.8.5

Additional context

I suspect that grayskull is following the PyPi redirect to remove underscores.

This issue led to unintentionally create a duplicate feedstock:
