[IPython-dev] Minimum virtualenv version for IPython development?
Mon Sep 23 20:40:11 CDT 2013
When using Python 2.7.5 built from source, and installing the latest
virtualenv, the following command from the IPython github page works fine:
pip install -e ".[notebook]"
However, when using Python 2.7.3 and virtualenv 18.104.22.168 from the Ubuntu
12.04 repos, the pip installed by virtualenv (apparently 1.1) fails to
execute that command with the following message:
--editable=.[notebook] should be formatted with svn+URL, git+URL, hg+URL or
Seems like that version of pip is missing some newer features? Actually I
haven't been able to find documention for the -e ".[notebook]" syntax on
the pip site. Apparently it installs all of the dependencies for the
"notebook" entry in setup.py?
Basically my questions are:
Is there a minimum version of virtualenv/pip required for developing
Is anyone developing off a system python from Ubuntu 12.04?
