When I try to install datacube-explorer v2.5.4 after extract it to a directory, enter the directory, and pip install . I have this error
The information it's showing in the error message is correct:
Make sure you're either building from a fully intact git repository or PyPI tarballs. Most other sources (such as GitHub's tarballs, a git checkout without the .git folder) don't contain the necessary metadata and will not work.
It currently needs to be installed via a Git checkout rather than a tarball due to our usage of
setuptools-scm, which reads the version information from Git on install.
git clone https://github.com/opendatacube/datacube-explorer.git cd datacube-explorer pip install .
(we should probably make this more obvious in the readme. We do plan to push it to PyPi eventually to make install even easier)
