>pip install --user pipe && pipe install magic-wormhole

What am I looking at here? On PyPI 'pipe' is listed as a "Module enablig a sh like infix syntax (using pipes)", and magic-wormhole's own docs just say to install with pip like anything else.

I typoed. I meant `pipx`, not `pipe`. My phone tried to help.

`pipx` is a convenience utility for installing cli python tools in separate virtual environments and then being able to update them nicely: https://github.com/pipxproject/pipx

So i meant

`pip install --user pipx && pipx install magic-wormhole`

Well I'm glad I asked, because that sure is neat!

pipx is rad. `pipx install ipython && pipx inject ipython numpy pandas attrs pendulum toolz` is ... very nice.
