pip python

(12)

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

"Most required support library for python"

What do you like best?

It is pip for python through which gateway to millions of libraries for python is opened.It makes installation of library of python much easier.By just typing "pip install lib_name" in command prompt downloads the library with its all requirements in a single click.Also upgrading and removing is easy using pip.It is the library without which other library installation would have been a nightmare.

What do you dislike?

Nope it has nothing to dislike about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pip Is undoubtedly required whenever working with python because without using pip if you go and manually install any library for python, you will quit using python.Rather pip makes it very simple to install, upgrade or uninstall any python library within clicks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My usage of pip is very frequent because I am a python developer and require to use various python libraries while working on different projects and for that pip makes my work simpler because if installing it through its source code is very complex and pip simplifies it to a greater extent.

"Using pip is the best way to manage python dependencies"

What do you like best?

You get the most updated library versions if you compare to package managers like apt or yum and it is easier to compile the modules. The best thing about pip is its simplicity, usually the packages are updated to the most recent version, it is well documented and there are a lot of maintainers

What do you dislike?

Currently I have not had any problems using pip

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation for all the developers that have decided to use PIP is that they have to read about how it works and the features it offers, PIP is very useful for teamwork because it allows everyone involved in the same project to work on base to the same libraries installing all the dependencies from a simple file, if you are looking to standardize your code, reduce development time and compatibility errors that can be generated, using PIP is your best option

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has been very helpful when we have several programmers for the same project and they have different distributions of Linux, with PIP we make sure that they all have the same version of the libraries, which

avoids future errors due to incompatibility, by standardizing the process you avoid possible problems in the future. When all developers receive the same requirements file, incompatibility errors are reduced or eliminated, development time is reduced, productivity is increased and processes are standardized,

finally all this becomes cost reduction without negatively affecting the quality of the projects that are being developed.

"Pip Dependency manager"

What do you like best?

It's one of the best dependency managers in general and the only think that works with python. I would say this is one of the things that make python a very widely used language

What do you dislike?

There are some weird issues with some pip installs sometime and there is not a lot of support to figure out why those issues occured.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try to figure out the python errors it throws before giving up on it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Dependency freezing, easy installation by just saying pip install requirements.txt

"Great tool to manage dependencies for Python"

What do you like best?

I have been using PIP for 6 years now, it is a savior for managing dependencies for python. It helps quickly search, install and purge python packages without the mess of manually downloading and installing packages. It now comes inbuilt with new python versions.

What do you dislike?

Although a great tool doesn't support virtualenv out of the box, and can easily mess up operating systems dependencies.

Recommendations to others considering the product

for beginners, it is the go-to tool, and for advanced users, If you are already using virtualenv using pip is handy, else you are going to mess up your os Python installation, so be a little careful.

"Python with PIP"

What do you like best?

We use PIP, with Python, because it is a great package manager for various Python packages. We use a Python version over 3.4, so it came included by default with Python. Basically, it allows us to download and install various packages (via the command line) and thus you can then start using those packages. You can think of those packages as libraries, if you're not familiar with what packages are.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike PIP, to be honest. One thing though, is every now and then the download/install of a package fails, but pretty much 99% of the time if I retry the download/install it then goes through. I'm not really sure why it fails sometimes, but it's not a big deal really.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look into PIP or CONDA.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For our business, of creating an automated test suite layer in Python (and RobotFramework), we use PIP to download and install various packages we need to support the coding process. One example, is the recent PIP download/install of PILLOW which is a library we use to support our code working with image uploading. It's a pretty refined library and works great!

"Easy and Widely Used"

What do you like best?

Pip is simple and can get you up and running with the Python packages you need quickly. Since Pip is most common to developers in my experience, the Pip repositories are comprehensive. Most Python workspace setups will include a "pip install ..." step.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about Pip, since it is a fairly simple tool. When I first began to use Pip, it was not easy for me to understand the concept of a package manager. Many articles I read assumed you knew what a package manager already was. It would be great if Pip made it very easy to become familiar with what it does and why you need it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Understand what Pip is and why you need it before starting. Also combine with VritualEnv for a great setup.
