How to install Python packages from the tar.gz file without using pip install
Long story short my work computer has network constraints which means trying to use
pip install in cmd just leads to timing out/not finding package errors.
Instead I have tried to download the tar.gz file of the packages I want, however, I do not know how to install them. I've extracted the files from the tar.gz file and there is a "setup" file within but it's not doing much for me.
