You are able to use pip to go directly to sites to get files, which is 
extremely useful if you don't have Visual Studio and hence need to 
bypass the files directly available from pypi.  I've used the following 
successfuly to get the Phoenix (Python 3) version of wxPython.

pip install --trusted-host -U --pre -f wxPython_Phoenix

So in theory you should be able to go straight to pythonlibs although 
I've not tried it myself.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
