There appears to be an interaction problem with https://github.com/kivy/python-for-android and recent pip: it appears pip uses formatting codes to rewrite already written output, and this clashes with whatever python-for-android is doing and I appear to get chunks of missing output or things written half over the terminal and I can’t see the actual error. This is the only readable error part I am getting:
working: pip._internal.exceptions.InstallationError: Could not build wheels for sfxscan which use PEP...(and 37 more) along with
Found link https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/c4/27/39e87b69a9a65cc89b6d83d21e7dec... (1301154 more, please see e.stdout). Nothing else of use as far as I can see
Earlier pip versions I don’t think I ever saw do this, has there been a recent change in how formatting works? Is there an option to turn this fancy but for me essentially useless feature off so I can get untampered output?
I would have filed a bug but I’m not 100% sure yet this is the culprit, but if anyone can tell me how to disable all that special terminal cursor and backspace rewrite and whatever stuff I would love to try
