All the answers there are worth a read and quite instructive, but this one is exactly what has happening to us ("it will work for you")
Warning about race condition during install
By the way, DO NOT import your package from your setup.py as suggested in another answer here: it will seem to work for you (because you already have your package's dependencies installed), but it will wreak havoc upon new users of your package, as they will not be able to install your package without manually installing the dependencies first.
It works in a fresh conda environment, installing mpl-chord-diagram neatly. It already contains c86251c75a 'Setup - Fix pip installation'. Haven't done a PR because IDK how you want't to go about this, plus I have some other minor suggestions (some of them are as comments in the commit).
In particular, moving files somewhere and then moving them back using a try/except/pass construct is dangerous. I issue python setup.py develop
then files disappear from the root dir, but never get moved back so the root directory is essentially broken and has to be restored by hand (Took me a while to figure out that some files had been moved). Again, this construct might have to do with the requirements for the git submodule to work, and this is just my two cents, BUT it seems dangerous.
What are your thoughts?
Hi there, sorry for the long delay...
I'm fine with your implementation so feel free to apply all changes you suggested in the comments and make a new PR 👍
