#38016 closed request (fixed)

Port request: pip_select

Reported by: cooljeanius (Eric Gallager) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.3
Keywords: Cc: irony42@…, petrrr, stromnov (Andrew Stromnov)
Port: pip_select

Description

A lot of the other python ports have *_select ports to go with them to let users create links to the version they want to use. However, pip doesn't have one though. It'd be nice to have a pip_select port to fix this.

I've never understood why people want select ports for python modules. Is there a problem with just adding Python.framework/Versions/X.Y/bin to your PATH?

comment:2 Changed 7 years ago by cooljeanius (Eric Gallager)

No, I suppose there isn't a problem with that. Still, many python modules do already have *_select ports to go with them, so it'd be useful to have some sort of standard policy in place to deal with whether they get one or not.

I came across a user on the mailing lists confused about why there wasn't a pip command after installing py26-pip: https://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-users/2013-March/032140.html

It could have been useful to have had a pip_select port to suggest that he use here.

Now that stromnov has added himself as a maintainer for py-pip as of r106753, could someone add him on cc for this ticket please?
