Is it possible to convince easy_install to grab extras specified in the "extras_require" arguments to setup()? I know this probably isn't something that should be on by default (that's why they're "extras"), but it would be nice to do something like:
easy_install some_package --also-install-all-available-extras
If it's not currently possible, I'd like to submit this as a feature request.
The syntax that should currently work is:
This is fine (if some extra typing) if you know what those extras are. Is there any way to ask easy_install to display what extras some_package can use?
Currently, I use easy_install to install some_package, keep typing "some_package_script_requiring_extras" to see the repeated DistributionNotFound errors and get them. It would be nice to short-circuit this process from the beginning.
