python-wheel 0.37.0

Format for built Python packages

A wheel is a ZIP-format archive with a specially formatted filename and the .whl extension. It is designed to contain all the files for a PEP 376 compatible install in a way that is very close to the on-disk format. Many packages will be properly installed with only the Unpack step and the unpacked archive preserves enough information to Spread (copy data and scripts to their final locations) at any later time. Wheel files can be installed with a newer pip or with wheel's own command line utility.


Install python-wheel 0.37.0 as follows:

guix install python-wheel@0.37.0

Or install the latest version:

guix install python-wheel

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
