Recently, I needed to install a package directly from Github which I’m trying to contribute into.
For example you have this url:
What you can do is just add
git+ as prefix in the URL.
Here’s how you can do it!
pip install git+https://github.com/zkanda/lambda-uploader
But the code that I want to install is from another branch, so how do we do it? We just add @branch_name at the end of the url.
pip install git+https://github.com/zkanda/lambda-uploader/@add-variables-as-shell-parameter
Your package is now installed.
I’m surprised how easy it is to do it, should anyone needed it, hope this can help you.
