How to install a Python Package from Source

To install a Python package from source, follow these steps:

  1. Download the source code of the package from the project's website or GitHub repository.

  2. Extract the source code to a directory of your choice.

  3. Open a command prompt or terminal and navigate to the directory where the source code is extracted.

  4. Run the command python setup.py install. This will compile the package and install it on your system.

Note that some packages may require additional dependencies or build tools to be installed before they can be built from source. Be sure to check the package's documentation for any additional installation instructions.
