Currently, our extras_require listing is:
setup_args['extras_require'] = dict(
parallel = 'pyzmq>=2.1.4',
zmq = 'pyzmq>=2.1.4',
doc = 'Sphinx>=0.3',
test = 'nose>=0.10.1',
notebook = 'tornado>=2.0'
but the docs read:
If you have :mod:`distribute` installed and you are on OS X or Linux (not
Windows), the following will download and install IPython *and* the main
.. code-block:: bash
$ easy_install ipython[zmq,qtconsole,notebook,test]
This will get:
- pyzmq, needed for IPython's parallel computing features, qt console and
- pygments, used by the Qt console for syntax highlighting.
- tornado, needed by the web-based notebook
- nose, used by the test suite.
So we're indeed lying (there's no qtconsole target) but in addition
there's no way to get pygments as a dep. Since pyqt itself isn't
installable with pip/easy_install, I'm wondering how to go about
offering a dependency that pulls pygments in.
My inclination right now would be to add it as a notebook dep, since
very soon it will be anyways (to convert notebooks). Objections?
