As a developer of a python module called pyDatalog
, I find the installation of modules by end-user frustratingly complex. One reason is that installation instructions currently need to be OS dependent. A solution to that issue would be to let users install module by using IDLE, not their OS. Indeed, IDLE is the same on all OS.
Users would :
* start IDLE of the python they want to install the module in
* import an installation module, e.g import pip
* execute a python command to install the desired module : pip('install', 'pyDatalog')
* restart IDLE to take advantage of the new module
Has this been considered before ? A search of 'IDLE' on this list did not bring anything. Is this technically possible ? Any comments welcome.
