XMC and Python - Install additional modules

    Hello,

    what is the best way to install additional python modules on XMC?
    As I see easy_install is present on the XMC but no PIP.

    Do new installed modules survive an XMC update?

    Best regards
    Stephan

    Hi Stephan,
    I think you can try:

    #@METADATASTART
    #@DetailDescriptionStart
    ################################################################
    # System Script
    #
    # Script : Using pip.
    # Revision : 1.0
    # Last updated : 7/17/2018
    # Purpose : To know using pip at XMC.
    #
    ################################################################
    #@DetailDescriptionEnd
    #@ScriptDescription "Using pip"
    #@SectionStart ( description = "pip install some")
    #@SectionEnd
    #@MetaDataEnd
    import sys
    sys.path.append('/usr/local/Extreme_Networks/NetSight/appdata/scripting')
    import os
    import pip
    import inspect
    from xmclib import emc_vars
    from xmclib import logger

    print("Running Python version is: %s" % sys.version)
    print("Running Python PATH is: %s" % sys.executable)
    print("Running module os is: %s" % inspect.getfile(os))
    print("---Start pip install a")
    pip.main(['install', 'a'])
    print("Running module a is: %s" % inspect.getfile(a))

    There would be two way, install package from XMC and from shell of running XMC.I believe from XMC is safer. But no guarantee, possible name space conflict etc.
    Also from shell would break system ( running XMC environment) Python environment.
