Here is the problem:
I have a requirements.txt file that looks like:
BeautifulSoup==3.2.0 Django==1.3 Fabric==1.2.0 Jinja2==2.5.5 PyYAML==3.09 Pygments==1.4 SQLAlchemy==0.7.1 South==0.7.3 amqplib==0.6.1 anyjson==0.3 ...
I have a local archive directory containing all the packages + others.
I have created a new virtualenv with
Upon activating it, I tried to install the packages according to requirements.txt from the local archive directory.
source bin/activate pip install -r /path/to/requirements.txt -f file:///path/to/archive/
I got some output that seems to indicate that the installation is fine:
Downloading/unpacking Fabric==1.2.0 (from -r ../testing/requirements.txt (line 3)) Running setup.py egg_info for package Fabric warning: no previously-included files matching '*' found under directory 'docs/_build' warning: no files found matching 'fabfile.py' Downloading/unpacking South==0.7.3 (from -r ../testing/requirements.txt (line 8)) Running setup.py egg_info for package South ....
But a later check revealed none of the package is installed properly. I cannot import the package, and none is found in the site-packages directory of my virtualenv. So what went wrong?
This works for me:
$ pip install -r requirements.txt --no-index --find-links file:///tmp/packages
--no-index – Ignore package index (only looking at
--find-links URLs instead).
-f, --find-links <URL> – If a URL or path to an HTML file, then parse for links to archives.
If a local path or
file:// URL that’s a directory, then look for archives in the directory listing.
