Generate Nix expressions for Python packages.
Why another .nix generator for Python?
I needed something that can work not only with pypi but also with local paths, VCS links, and dependency links. I couldn’t get any of the other generators to work, so I started my own :-)
$ git clone https://github.com/johbo/pip2nix $ nix-env -f pip2nix/release.nix -iA pip2nix.python34 # Same Python as target packages
To generate python-packages.nix for a set of requirements:
$ pip2nix generate -r requirements.txt
pip2nix generate takes the same set of package specifications pip install does.
Problems and questions should go to GitHub issues.
