Python pip ‘editable’ installing

From time to time I get asked (and I even have to ask a coworker) for the best way to install a Python modules (especially ones with entry points) into a virtualenv and still edit / develop with them. It seems ​pip install‘s ‘-e’ is very unknown.

pip install -e /path/you/are/editing

Will allow you to develop and run with all dependencies install in your virtualenv.

Happy dev’in!
