I am using gitlab repositories also to install private packages via “pip install”. As far as I understood pip is installing from the “default” branch. Am I right?
Is there a way to change this behavior? (apart from appending @branchname to the git+ssh path in the the installation command)
This is really a question about
pip rather than GitLab, but I think the documentation you are looking for is here
Thank you very much @snim2!
I didn’t know it was “decided” by pip.
I still cannot find the branch choose, but now I’ll search through pip docs and forums. Thank you again!
There’s an example just where I linked you, I think?
MyProject @ git+https://git.example.com/MyProject.git@master
In that example they explicitly decide to install from the branch “master”.
But without the branch specification, this is what I’m asking, I cannot find in which way pip (git?) decide the branch to install from.
Ah, right. I think so, the default “revision” that
pip retrieves is
HEAD (in this LOC)
That’s it. Thank you @snim2!
