How to turn a package into something pip can install

+2 votes
89 views

I want to use (https://github.com/timetric/python-metar). Our deployment process more or less requires that it be installed via pip. We maintain our own cache of packages and install using:

pip install --no-index --quiet --find-links packages --requirement requirements.txt 

What I can't figure out is what I need to do to go from a clone of the github repo to a tarball I can drop into our packages directory. Is there some tutorial somewhere that explains this?

PIP is package manager for Python. I found someone installing with using PIP3.

Can anyone explain what is PIP3 and difference from PIP?

I want to install path.py in my Python 3.4 environment on a Centos 5 box. My /usr/local/bin/ contains:

easy_install-3.4 
python3.4  
etc. 

We are behind a proxy server and I tried this:

# /usr/local/bin/easy_install-3.4 path.py 

Searching for path.py 
Reading https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/ 
Download error on https://pypi.python.org/simple/path.py/: hostname '172.29.68.1  
' doesn't match either of 'www.python.org', 'python.org', 'pypi.python.org',  
'docs.python.org', 'testpypi.python.org', 'bugs.python.org', 'wiki.python.org',  
'hg.python.org', 'mail.python.org', 'packaging.python.org', 'pythonhosted.org',  
'www.pythonhosted.org', 'test.pythonhosted.org', 'us.pycon.org', 'id.python.org' --  
Some packages may not be found! 

Couldn't find index page for 'path.py' (maybe misspelled?), Am I best to use pip or easy_install? also if easy_install, how can I fix the above error?

Whenever I run the Leo editor (a Python application) from Windows (8.1), there is always an event log window in the background. I want to turn it off.

It was suggested to me on another forum that I use pythonw.exe instead of python.exe to prevent the window from being displayed, but I don't know how to do this, because it is all automatic: I just click on the .py file, and the python interpreter is automatically loaded.

Could someone please tell me how to disable the event log window?
