Why install Hitch on the system path?¶
The instructions in quickstart tell you to install hitch on the system path like so:
$ sudo pip install hitch
Or (on Mac OS X):
$ pip install hitch
This package can be installed in a virtualenv, but there is no point to doing so, since:
- It is just a simple bootstrapper script.
- It contains none of the actual code to run tests.
- It has zero dependencies so installing it will not interfere with other system packages.
- It needs to be available on the system path so that the ‘hitch’ command can always be used.
