can't you use python3 -m pip install .....
That's what I tell my beginner students to do, and I've never had a
problem. (nce they got Python installed right in the first place) For that:
The python.og installers for Windows and Mac pretty much
Linux is a different story, but Linux users are more comfortable with eh
whole idea of command lines and packages, etc -- so my Linux users have
never been the hangup.
If/when I'm teaching data analysis for scientific computing, I go straight
to conda, but for basic python, and most web Development, pyton.org python
and pip work great.
A also DO NOT introduce virtualenv right off the bat -- it is another
complication that is critical to real development, but not important for
I have done it it the past -- it did not go well....
What's too bad now is that so many docs say "pip install the_package", and
users with multiple python installs can get burnt. (though most don't)
