How to install Python package from GitHub? [duplicate]


You need to use the proper git URL:

pip install git+https://github.com/jkbr/httpie.git#egg=httpie

Also see the VCS Support section of the pip documentation.

Don’t forget to include the egg=<projectname> part to explicitly name the project; this way pip can track metadata for it without having to have run the setup.py script.


To install Python package from github, you need to clone that repository.

git clone https://github.com/jkbr/httpie.git

Then just run the setup.py file from that directory,

sudo python setup.py install
