Can I install Scrapy package for python in atom?


#1

Hi, I am wondering if we could install some packages, such as Scrapy, pygame or others packages in atom. Do anyone know if I could do that?

What do you mean by installing packages “in Atom”? Atom does not contain your Python installation. If you want to run pip from inside the Atom window, you can use a package that gives you a terminal, such as termination or atom-ide-ui. If all you want is to run code (via script, hydrogen, etc.) in Atom and import packages in your code, then you don’t have to reinstall them if they’re already installed.
