Show error when installing dependency fails?

See original GitHub issue

A package that I included in my Pipfile failed to install when I ran pipenv install, so pipenv failed with the message

pip.exceptions.InstallationError: Command "python egg_info" failed with error code 1 in <source directory>

Would it be a good idea for pipenv to show more information when the install fails (possibly behind the --verbose flag)?

(By the way, I’m getting this error with a local dependency—not sure if that makes a difference.)

Yup, I have no clue what precise things were present in whatever old version you’re using, if you want support, install the new version and describe the problem if you encounter it. Thanks for filing this issue and sorry for the frustration.

Okay since you said so I’ll just say I don’t know. The code it there for me to trace, but I’m too lazy to look it up.
