Issue #46 resolved

Upload pysdl2 to pypi

Matthew Iversen
created an issue

From pip 1.5 onwards, it will not install external downloads by default. i.e:

$ pip install pysdl2
Downloading/unpacking pysdl2
  Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement pysdl2
  Some externally hosted files were ignored (use --allow-external pysdl2 to allow).
Cleaning up...
No distributions at all found for pysdl2
Storing debug log for failure in /home/ivo/.pip/pip.log

For this, any pip user would now have to enter:

pip install pysdl2 --allow-external pysdl2 --allow-unverified pysdl2

It is possible to fix this so pip install pysdl2 works again, simply by uploading the library to PyPI. you can do this through python setup.py sdist --formats=zip,gztar upload, or use python setup.py sdist --formats=zip,gztar and twine upload dist/* if you have the cool twine tool installed.

    Although I question the road, pip takes here, unless the infrastructure for pypi provides a full chain of trust, I can see the additional hurdle to overcome when installing using that excessive usage of option knobs.

    I'll consider this for the next release.
