Question :

python pip: force install ignoring dependencies

Is there any way to force install a pip python package ignoring all it’s dependencies that cannot be satisfied?

(I don’t care how “wrong” it is to do so, I just need to do it, any logic and reasoning aside…)

Answer #1:

pip has a --no-dependencies switch. You should use that.

For more information, run pip install -h, where you’ll see this line:

--no-deps, --no-dependencies
                        Ignore package dependencies

Answer #2:

When I were trying install librosa package with pip (pip install librosa), this error were appeared:

ERROR: Cannot uninstall 'llvmlite'. It is a distutils installed project and thus we cannot accurately determine which files belong to it which would lead to only a partial uninstall.

I tried to remove llvmlite, but pip uninstall could not remove it. So, I used capability of ignore of pip by this code:

pip install librosa --ignore-installed llvmlite

Indeed, you can use this rule for ignoring a package you don’t want to consider:

pip install {package you want to install} --ignore-installed {installed package you don't want to consider}
