episode 163: pip install ./local_directory - Stéphane Bidoul

pip : "pip installs packages" or maybe "Package Installer for Python"
pip is an invaluable tool when developing with Python.
A lot of people know pip as a way to install third party packages from pypi.org
You can also use pip to install from other indexes (or is it indices?)

You can also use pip to install a package in a local directory.
That's the part I want to jump in and explore with Stéphane Bidoul.
The way pip installs from a local directory is about to change, and the story is fascinating.
