How to send a message to the user when they should take further action themselves?
For example I have a package whose dependencies can be safely installed on Windows with
pip install mypackage but on Linux the platform package manager should be used to complete the dependencies with an
yum install thing. Is there an idiomatic something to be added to setup.py for this circumstance or do I roll my own, such as:
#setup.py# from sys import platform if platform == "linux" or platform == "linux2": print(linux_extra_instructions)
