OpenStack Cloud Tools Python Packages are quite easy to install python using the pip command. We have shown how to install for Linux server. We talked about OpenStack before and here is a comprehensive guide for the beginners.
OpenStack Cloud Tools : Installing the Python Packages
pip command is a nice tool for installing and managing Python packages. It is a sort of replacement for easy_install for Python packages. pip is very useful for web development as well as for system administers who manages resources created on Openstack be it on Rackspace or other cloud computing service providers. Please note that, pip for all users requires root privilege but pip for a single user does not require root privilege. Usually people uses virtualenv script. You will find the usage of virtualenv script for using various command line tools developed for Rackspace Cloud Files, Cloud Server. These are the basics you need to know for using OpenStack Cloud Tools Python Packages. You can see an example usage of virtualenv script in the following situation. Again, this example is not related to OpenStack Cloud Tools Python Packages.
