To install a Python 2.6+ package to your home directory, specify --user:
pip install --user django
The package, django, will be installed under ~/.local/lib/.
To view packages locally installed, issue pip-python list. To view remote packages using basic string matching, use pip-python search PKGTOKEN, where PKGTOKEN is a partial package name to search for. You may wish to page long content by piping output to less as in pip-python search PKGTOKEN | less:
pip-python uninstall PKGNAME where PKGNAME is a package installed and listed via pip-python list.
pip-python install --upgrade PKGNAME where PKGNAME is the package installed and listed via pip-python list.
