Asked By – Ankur Agarwal
I am trying to write
setup.py for my package. My package needs to specify a dependency on another Git repository.
This is what I have so far:
from setuptools import setup, find_packages setup( name='abc', packages=find_packages(), url='https://github.abc.com/abc/myabc', description='This is a description for abc', long_description=open('README.md').read(), install_requires=[ "requests==2.7.0", "SomePrivateLib>=0.1.0", ], dependency_links = [ "git+git://github.abc.com/abc/SomePrivateLib.git#egg=SomePrivateLib", ], include_package_data=True, )
When I run:
pip install -e https://github.abc.com/abc/myabc.git#egg=analyse
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement
SomePrivateLib>=0.1.0 (from analyse) (from versions: ) No matching
distribution found for SomePrivateLib>=0.1.0 (from analyse)
What am I doing wrong?
Now we will see solution for issue: How to write setup.py to include a Git repository as a dependency

You can find the right way to do it here.
The key is not to give a link to a Git repository, but a link to a tarball. GitHub creates a tarball of the master branch for you if you append
/tarball/master as shown above.
