I’ve switched to an all PIP deployment setup. I used to keep some libraries in my code repository because I needed specific versions or hacked ones.
I’m now in a setup where I don’t have any hacked libraries, so all is good, except I need a dev version of django-mailer that’s not on PIP.
PIP can handle git repos, but what if an unstable change gets introduced?
Well, until now, I didn’t know you could specify a commit hash in your pip install command.
Specify the hash tag with @, and use git:// syntax, not the default https: that the clone bar shows you.
# requirements.txt git+git://github.com/jtauber/django-mailer.git@840d25bb9db9fbc801b9 # shell bash $ pip install -r requirements.txt
