pip install python packages makes it easy

pip is easy_install replacement, and it is easy to use. Here are some features I recently used:
  1. To install something from Python Package Index, for example, Django 1.1, you just issue: pip install django, it will download it and install it.
  2. To see what Python Packages were installed by pip, you can use command: pip freeze, of course, you can redirect the output to a file and pass around.
  3. To uninstall a Python Package, for example, Django 1.1 installed in step 1, the command is: pip uninstall django.
  4. To install some Python Package you may run into error: No distributions at all found for xxxxx, you can supply the package file url to the pip install command, for example, if you want to install Django 0.96.5, here is the command: pip install http://www.djangoproject.com/download/0.96.5/tarball/, this one is pretty cool, if you can find the package gz file, then you can install it by using pip.

Organizations need to be assured the individuals that manage their projects can integrate methods to achieve sustainability goals and still achieve project specific objectives. Project Managers need credentials that validate their proficiency with these specialized qualities. PMP Certified and scrum certified project managers can learn, apply, and validate mastery of sustainability based project methods to meet these demands.
