Debugging / testing a third party package without hacking the pip installed version
cd somewhere
git clone[OWNER]/[REPO].git --branch [SPECIFIC BRANCH] --single-branch
cd [REPO]
python develop
# Usually, restart dev server to prevent it using already loaded site-packages modules.
# Hack away on code in [REPO], python will use this one rather than the one in site-packages.
# When done, to switch back:
python develop --uninstall
cd ..
rm -rf [REPO]
You can’t perform that action at this time.
