13.1 > Development > pip (0.8.2)

pip is a replacement for easy_install (from pysetuptools). It uses mostly
the same techniques for finding packages, so packages that were made
easy_installable should be pip-installable as well.

pip is meant to improve on easy_install. Some of the improvements:

- All packages are downloaded before installation. Partially-completed
installation doesn't occur as a result.
- Care is taken to present useful output on the console.
- The reasons for actions are kept track of. For instance, if a package is
being installed, pip keeps track of why that package was required.
- Error messages should be useful.
- The code is relatively concise and cohesive, making it easier to use
- Packages don't have to be installed as egg archives, they can be
installed flat (while keeping the egg metadata).
- Native support for other version control systems (Git, Mercurial and
- Uninstallation of packages.
- Simple to define fixed sets of requirements and reliably reproduce a set
of packages.

pip is complementary with virtualenv (can be found at SBo), and it is
encouraged that you use virtualenv to isolate your installation.

pip requires pysetuptools.
