Install with pipx

If you are using aider to work on a python project, sometimes your project will require specific versions of python packages which conflict with the versions that aider requires. If this happens, the pip install command may return errors like these:

aider-chat 0.23.0 requires somepackage==X.Y.Z, but you have somepackage U.W.V which is incompatible.

You can avoid this problem by installing aider using pipx, which will install it globally on your system within its own python environment. This way you can use aider to work on any python project, even if that project has conflicting dependencies.

Install pipx then just do:

pipx install aider-chat
