I know the obvious answer is to use virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper, but for various reasons I can’t/don’t want to do that.
So how do I modify the command
pip install package_name
pip install the package somewhere other than the default
Now we will see solution for issue: Install a Python package into a different directory using pip?
pip install --install-option="--prefix=$PREFIX_PATH" package_name
You might also want to use
--ignore-installed to force all dependencies to be reinstalled using this new prefix. You can use
--install-option to multiple times to add any of the options you can use with
python setup.py install (
--prefix is probably what you want, but there are a bunch more options you could use).
