Wraps pip and virtualenv to install scripts

Project description

pipsi = pip script installer

What does it do? pipsi is a wrapper around virtualenv and pip which installs scripts provided by python packages into separate virtualenvs to shield them from your system and each other.

In other words: you can use pipsi to install things like pygmentize without making your system painful.

How do I get it?

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mitsuhiko/pipsi/master/get-pipsi.py | python

How does it work?

pipsi installs each package into ~/.local/venvs/PKGNAME and then symlinks all new scripts into ~/.local/bin.

Installing scripts from a package:

$ pipsi install Pygments

Uninstalling packages and their scripts:

$ pipsi uninstall Pygments

Upgrading a package:

$ pipsi upgrade Pygments

Showing what’s installed:

$ pipsi list

How do I get rid of pipsi?

$ pipsi uninstall pipsi

How do I upgrade pipsi? With 0.5 and later just do this:

$ pipsi upgrade pipsi

On older versions just uninstall and reinstall.
