Pip Install with Docker and Fixing the ascii decode error
posted on November 14 2014
When trying to install python packages with pip inside a Docker container, you may get an error like:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xe2 in position 72: ordinal not in range(128) 2014/11/14 15:44:47 The command [/bin/sh -c pip install -r /tmp/requirements.txt] returned a non-zero code: 1
ENV LANG en_US.UTF-8 to your Dockerfile before your
pip install and it will be okay.
