FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

In this video, we will take an in-depth look at Python’s package management system, pip. We’ll walk through how to install, uninstall, list, and upgrade packages. We will also dive into how we can output our dependencies and install a list of dependencies.

An in-depth knowledge of pip can be a great addition to your Python tool-belt.

    grep -v, –invert-match
    Selected lines are those not matching any of the specified patterns.

    grep -v throws away the lines that match the pattern. In this case ^ means begins the line with a -e, so … do not include those lines in the output. The dash in the -e must be escaped with the backslash or the grep command will see it as an argument to itself and not part of the pattern to match.

    The cut comment used the character following the -d ( delimiter ) to break the input line into fields and selects those fields, in this case the first field.

    Finally the xargs comment feeds the input to another command in a controlled ways such that it will not overwhelm the comment with too many arguments on the shell command line. Like if you wanted to do an ls -l on thousands of files the command line would choke … so xargs breaks the command into separate invocations to be able to manage the input.

    Pip freeze –local | grep -v '^-e' . How can we execute grep command in Windows machine. Grep is related to linux

    Man, that command to upgrade all the packages was neat.

    i need to account for dependencies….how do I create a script that installs dependencies first

    I have an interesting situation, I installed pyodbc 3.7 with pip, SQL Server's python support msi, but the pyodbc wasn't put in the lib/scripts folder. There was a pyodbc put in the SQL Server program folder, probably from the .msi, but importing won't work as pyodbc has a from . import connect and a from .. import util, which are located the SQL program folders. Not sure how to continue with this.. ??? google didn't find anything useful, just says to run pip, which I already did. And there's also a .whl file too. not sure what to do with that
    your thoughts Corey? Have you used SQL Server with python? and a pip list shows pyodbc 4.0.24

    It would be great if you put a link to the stack overflow you refer to and / or paste the command line in the description.

    I dind't understood the freeze command. You had 3 packages installed so far but when you typed freeze it showed only one of them. Would you be kind to elaborate a little about this point?

    what happens if the package installed in my virtual env is newer than the version listed in requirements.txt and I attempted a 'pip install -r requirements.txt'? Would it downgrade the package assuming there are no conflicts?

  24. Umesh Sunnapu October 9, 2019 at 11:17 pm - Reply

    where is the source for pip packages. Is there any conf file that pip uses to look into a repository for available/installed pip packages.???

    Keep in mind that these commands will vary for different OS systems.

    Hi Corey,
    Thank you very much for your excellent set of videos on python. Actually I am new in python, do have programming experience in 'C' long time back and have some linux experience. In this video, you have mentioned, how to upgrade all outdated packages, a better and easy way in my opinion (in bash) is

    pip install -U $(pip list -o|cut -f 1 -d ' ')

    This method is much simpler I think. Here, output of "pip list -o" is piped to "cut -f 1 -d ' '" which return first field (which is the package name) using white space as delimiter and output of all this is given to "pip install -U".

    Those whoever asking questions about getting errors. I guess you guys are using python3.5 or later. If so Please enter 'pip3' not simply 'pip'. python pip package has been upgraded to pip3.
    Thanks

    I'm a bit confused. I googled how to install pip and I did, following the tutorial on their website..basically I did python3.5 get-pip.py in to terminal when i downloaded the file get-pip.py and it did its thing and it downloaded. Now since I'm on a mac by default it loads the 2.7 python version which i dont care for very much. However, even though it was installed for 3.5 i cant install it for 2.7 as it gives me permission errors and simply typing any pip commands from the video in terminal errors out in -bash: pip: command not found, what do i need to do ?

    Whenever I run any pip command, it runs but at the bottom of the terminal output there is a message saying, "You are using pip version 8.1.2, however version 9.0.1 is available.
    You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install –upgrade pip' command."

    I have tried using the 'pip install –upgrade pip' command but it gives long red colored text and fails to upgrade. I've tried searching over the internet but nothing seems to work.
    I also tried removing pip and re installing it.
    I am running ubuntu (dual boot).

    1. Do I really need to upgrade?
    2. How should I upgrade if it's really necessary?
    Thanks

    How did you make the terminal look so much better?
    It is much more readable.
