How do I install a Python package with a .whl file?
To install a Python package with a .whl file, you can use the
pip command. Here is an example code snippet:
pip install package_name.whl
Make sure to replace
package_name.whl with the actual name of the .whl file you want to install.
You can also install from the local directory by providing the path of the .whl file:
pip install path/to/package_name.whl
You may also use the
--user option to install the package in the user directory:
pip install --user package_name.whl
You can also use
--upgrade option to upgrade the package if it's already installed.
pip install -U package_name.whl
It's also a good practice to run the command with
--no-cache-dir option to ensure that the package is not being installed from cache.
pip install --no-cache-dir package_name.whl
Please make sure to have the correct version of python and pip before installing the package.
