pip-config - Man Page

description of pip config command

Description

Manage local and global configuration.

Subcommands:

Configuration keys should be dot separated command and option name, with the special prefix "global" affecting any command. For example, "pip config set global.index-url https://example.org/" would configure the index url for all commands, but "pip config set download.timeout 10" would configure a 10 second timeout only for "pip download" commands.

If none of --user, --global and --site are passed, a virtual environment configuration file is used if one is active and the file exists. Otherwise, all modifications happen to the user file by default.

Usage

python -m pip config [<file-option>] list
python -m pip config [<file-option>] [--editor <editor-path>] edit

python -m pip config [<file-option>] get command.option
python -m pip config [<file-option>] set command.option value
python -m pip config [<file-option>] unset command.option
python -m pip config [<file-option>] debug

Options

--editor <editor>

Editor to use to edit the file. Uses VISUAL or EDITOR environment variables if not provided.

--global

--user

Use the user configuration file only

--site
