steps to reproduce:

virtualenv ./venv
. ./venv/bin/activate
pip install --upgrade pip
pip install --upgrade setuptools
hg clone roundup-code
cd roundup-code
pip install --editable .


error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:

I can confirm that I am seeing a similar issue when using the
-e/--editable option with pip. Invoking pip without the -e option does
not result in an error.

So there seems to be some issue with "development mode"[1] that needs
looking into a bit closer.

a worked solution in attachement:

works with "pip install ." and "pip install -e ."

tested with:
pip (6.0.7)
setuptools (12.0.5)

This patch works for me as well.

In regard to the patch the use of the map function makes it non-obvious
what is going on (ie. requires more brain power to figure what is
happening). It may be simpler to make the equivalent changes in the
scriptname() function instead.

I have slightly reworked the patch an push the changes to the repository:

Thanks for the original patch tonich

This change breaks scripts installation with ` install`. Working 
on a proper fix for this.
msg5428 Author: [hidden] (techtonik) Date: 2016-01-09 21:11
The problem is that "pip install --editable ." converts from 
distutils to setuptools script and ignores build_scripts step.
msg5429 Author: [hidden] (techtonik) Date: 2016-01-09 21:13
setuptools instead calls its own install_egg_scripts() on "develop", which 
just copies the stuff verbatim.

@techtonik also see issue2550898
msg5435 Author: [hidden] (techtonik) Date: 2016-01-10 07:13
@jerrykan aha, thanks for the pointer. I was about to report the same 
results. =)

Another try

ping. Please take a look on the second patch. It solves both problems
(this and #2550898).
msg5889 Author: [hidden] (rouilj) Date: 2016-07-31 20:41
Jerrykan or anatoly, can one of you evaluate the second path
on this issue and see if it solves the problem?

If so I'll get it integrated.

ping John, Anatoly

have either of you evaluated the second patch to see if it fixed the issues?

Re-ping does anybody understand what's happening here and if
the second patch fixes it?

Triple ping JerryKan or Anatoly can either of you validate the patch? I 
would like to get it into 1.6.0, but we are late in the process. I don't 
want to chance breaking something and I don't understand what's happening 
here enough to make an assessment.

Hello John,

Great to hear a v1.6.0 release might be coming soon.

This issue really only affects developers/contributors who are working 
on the roundup codebase so I don't really see it as being a blocker for 
a v1.6.0 release.

I would suggest that if any patch were to be merged, it might be safer 
to do it after the v1.6.0 release given that changes could potentially 
cause problems for end-users (see #2550898 for an example of where this 
has happened before).

I am closing this. Developers can run from the tarball without the need to install as we can now run python roundup/scripts/roundup_server with what looks like live reload.

I don't think that existed when anatoly wanted live reload in the script for his jinja2 work.

There is already a reference to this ticket in issue2550899,
one of the distutils -> setuptools tickets. 
The work to make sure the patches are polyglot etc. can be done there.
