Where is the Python pip cache folder? I had an error during installation and now reinstall packages using cache files. Where is that directory? I want to take a backup of them for installation in the future. Is it possible?
For example, I have this one
Using cached cssselect-0.9.1.tar.gz
I searched google for this directory but nothing I saw, is learning how to install from a folder, I want to find the default cache directory.
And another question: Will these cache files stay in that directory, or will they be removed soon?
Now we will see solution for issue: Where is pip cache folder?
It depends on the operating system.
With pip 20.1 or later, you can find it with:
pip cache dir
For example with macOS:
$ pip cache dir /Users/hugo/Library/Caches/pip
