Where is pip cache folder
Where is Python pip cache folder? I had error during install and now reinstall packages using cache files
Where is that directory? I want backup them for install in the future. Is it possible ?
For example I have this one :
Using cached cssselect-0.9.1.tar.gz
I searched google for this directory but anything I saw, is learn to how install from a folder, I want to find default cache directory.
And another question, these cache files will stay in that directory or will remove soon ?
Because this question ranks, and the accepted answer doesn't quite match the question title:
The default location for the cache directory depends on the Operating System:
~/.cache/pip and it respects the XDG_CACHE_HOME directory.
Pip will read from the subdirectory wheels within the pip cache directory and use any packages found there. [snip]
The location of the cache directory can be changed via the command line option
