Simpler python package installation

Project Description

Python (package) installation

Getting started from PyPI:

easy_install pi

Whence easy_install?


  • Uninstall package named “pip”:

    pi uninstall pip
  • Install package named “filesequence”:

    pi install filesequence
  • List paths that Python searches for imported modules:

    pi paths
  • List installed packages:

    pi list


Continuous integration:

Or run tests locally:

nosetests --with-doctest


pi does not yet completely replace setuptools. You may need to install it first:

Distro Package manager command
Ubuntu apt-get install python-setuptools
Mac built-in
Arch pacman -S python-setuptools
CentOS yum install python-setuptools
