Where does pip install to? I’ve checked /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages/ but it is empty.
Turns out it installs packages to /home/ubuntu/virtualenvs/venv-3.4.2/lib/python3.4/site-packages
CircleCI containers use a virtual environment for Python, so PIP will target the Python site-packages directory based on what version you have active.
You can see which is active by running
pyenv local or to get even more specific you can do
which will report something like:
pip 8.1.2 from /home/ubuntu/pyenv/versions/2.7.11/lib/python2.7/site-packages (python 2.7)
