Python, package exists on PyPi but cant install it via pip

The package PyAudioWPatch is shown as available on PyPi with a big old green check mark.

However when I try to install it, I am getting the following error:

% pip install PyAudioWPatch                                                                    

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement PyAudioWPatch (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for PyAudioWPatch

For context:

% python -V; pip -V
Python 3.9.13
pip 22.3.1 from /Users/petertoth/Documents/Desktop_record_sum/py/venv/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pip (python 3.9)

Why is this the case?

>Solution :

The project has only wheels for Windows, and your system is not Windows, hence the error.

And I should assume that to be by design, because it declares to be a PortAudio fork with WASAPI loopback support. As WASAPI is a Windows thing, it does not make sense to install it on a non Windows system.

IMHO, you’d better install the original project. If you really want this one, then you should try to get it from GitHub
