Pip warning during binder

FYI: I didn’t see any issues or previous posts, but I assume folks have seen or know about this warning message that pops up in the log when starting a binder:

WARNING: pip is being invoked by an old script wrapper. This will fail in a future version of pip.
Please see https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/5599 for advice on fixing the underlying issue.
To avoid this problem you can invoke Python with ‘-m pip’ instead of running pip directly.

Anyway, I assume this is happening to everyone everywhere, so it may require changing the way pip is invoked sometime in the future.


Hi thanks for bringing this up. Indeed it has popped up a few times but as of yet no one has fixed it :slight_smile:

I think replacing the pip install command with the new way would make for a good first contribution to repo2docker for someone who is familiar with (or wants to learn about) conda and Python.
