  • jars gems eggs (wheels)
  • where to find them? PyPI pypi.python.org Python Package Index
  • pip Recommended tool for installing uninstalling upgrading packages from PyPI
  • pip basic commands pip install [—-upgrade] <package> Installs a Python package or upgrades it to the latest available version. ! Examples pip install pymongo=1.2 pip install /some/dir/mypackage.tgz pip install http://someserver/mypackage.zip pip install git+ssh://myserver/myrepo.git@feature#egg=MyPackage ! ! pip uninstall <package> Deletes an already installed package
  • pip basic commands pip list [—-outdated] Lists installed packages ! ! pip search <string> Searches for packages whose description contains the specified string > pip list --outdated amqp (Current: 1.3.3 Latest: 1.4.4) billiard (Current: Latest: celery (Current: 3.1.5 Latest: 3.1.9) … Examples > pip search cassandra cqlengine - Cassandra CQL 3 Object Mapper for Python CassandraLauncher - Command line utilities for launching Cassandra clusters in EC2 pycassa - Python client library for Apache Cassandra …
  • what happens if…? > pip install pymongo ! (…) error: could not create '/Library/Python/ 2.7/site-packages/bson': Permission denied
  • virtualenv Tool for creating Python environments i s o l a t e d
  • virtualenv v1 v2 v3 django lxml + site packages numpy=1.8.0 pymongo requests>=2.2.0 site packages pyOpenSSL, pip, numpy=1.6.2
  • creating a virtual env virtualenv [options] <dest_dir> Create a new virtual environment at the specified path. It will contain a copy of all system-wide packages. ! Useful options —-no-site-packages Create a new empty virtual environment. —-python=<python path> Use the specified Python executable.
  • switching to a virtual env > source <dir>/bin/activate (v1)> ! ! Exiting current virtualenv (v1)> deactivate >
  • cool stuff with pip + virtualenv ! pip freeze > requirements.txt Create a description file with the packages and versions installed under the current virtualenv. ! pip install -r requirements.txt Install all packages according to the specification in requirements.txt.
  • summary • Packages: code someone else has written (SciPy, Django, lxml, pymongo) • Find packages on PyPI: pypi.python.org • Install them using pip • Keep your environment clean by using virtualenv
