get-pip.py is a bootstrapping script that enables users to install pip,
setuptools, and wheel in Python environments that don't already have them. You
should not directly reference the files located in this repository and instead
use the versions located at https://bootstrap.pypa.io/.
$ curl -sSL https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py -o get-pip.py $ python get-pip.py
get-pip.py will install
the current Python environment.
It is possible to provide additional arguments to the underlying script. These
are passed through to the underlying
pip install command, and can thus be
used to constraint the versions of the packages, or to pass other pip options
$ python get-pip.py "pip < 21.0" "setuptools < 50.0" "wheel < 1.0" $ python get-pip.py --no-index --find-links=/local/copies
This script also has it's own options, which control which packages it will install.
--no-setuptools: do not attempt to install
--no-wheel: do not attempt to install
You need to have a
nox available on the CLI.
How it works
get-pip.py bundles a copy of pip with a tiny amount of glue code. This glue
code comes from the
Updating after a pip release
If you just made a pip release, run
nox -s update-for-release -- <version>.
This session will handle all the script updates (by running
the changes and tag the commit.
IMPORTANT: Check that the correct files got modified before pushing. The session will pause to let you do this.
Generating the scripts
nox -s generate.
