You can do an editable install using whichever development tool you've chosen, e.g. Poetry. The poetry docs (https://python-poetry.org/docs/basic-usage/) say it does an editable install by default.
Currently, there isn't a standardised way for 'frontend' tools like pip to ask for an editable install.

I have converted my setup.py to pyproject.toml and use poetry to build/manage deps. I maintain packages which also have dependency packages and I frequently use development installations locally ("pip install -e ../my-dep") so to develop dependencies at the same time as my main packages.
Q: With a pyproject.toml, can I enable some sort of development installation without also maintaining a setup.py - or is there a plan/PEP for enabling this without a setup.py?
Right now, I have a setup.py which needs to stipulate a number of things which is already in my pyproject.toml. In particular, I find it a little bothering that I need to specify the entry_points/console_scripts in both the pyproject.toml and in setup.py.
