Document Pip PEP 517 installation quirks

See original GitHub issue

I try to install brainiak on MacOS Mojave just by

python3 -m pip install -U brainiak

following the instruction on Docs » Installation page. But at the end I still encounter an error as

ERROR: Could not build wheels for brainiak which use PEP 517 and cannot be installed directly

So what’s the problem with me? Did I do something wrong?

Thanks, Zhao

For example, you can create a virtual environment for testing like this:

python3 -m venv testvenv
source testvenv/bin/activate
python3 -m pip install -U pip\<10
python3 -m pip install brainiak

Thanks for the detailed output. I will modify the documentation to include the --no-use-pep517 flag.
