[annotator-dev] A question about Annotator backend

Hi Johnny,

I have no idea what "pip" is on your system, but if it doesn't have a -E
option I don't think it's the right thing. "pip" the python package
installer has had "-E" since *at least* version 0.1.2, and the current
version is 1.1!

See http://www.pip-installer.org/en/latest/news.html

The only other possibility which occurs to me is that pip behaves
differently on Win32 ... but again, the page above indicates that it's
worked on Windows for a very long time.

Hi folks,

I was trying to set up a backend for annotator using the official store

And I was following the instructions below

*pip -E pyenv install -e .
source pyenv/bin/activate
cp annotator.cfg.example annotator.cfg
python run.py*

then got the following error

*E:\dev\applications\Python27\Scripts>pip -E pyenv install -e .*
*Usage: pip-script.py COMMAND [OPTIONS]*
*pip-script.py: error: no such option: -E*

-E and -e don't seem to be valid options for pip, any advice would be

Thanks and regards,
