How to use pip on a nodejs Docker (Pipelines)

Here is my pipeline script (I am developing a primarily node based app, with a bit of Python)

image: node:4.4.7

    - step:
          - python --version
          - pip install -U pymysql
          - ...


The output is as follows

python --version
   Python 2.7.9

pip install -U pymysql
   bash: pip: command not found

Pip should be present by default in Python 2.7.9, but I am unable to use it on this particular Docker image.  Am I doing anything wrong?

since it's a node specific image, it may have a broken and/or minimal python install.

I'm not familiar with python, but I'd try installing pip.


Alternatively, you could run that image locally and look around without having to push commits to test.  Once you have docker installed you can try:


    docker run -it --volume=`pwd`:/repo --workdir="/repo" --memory=1024m node:4.4.7 /bin/bash



Yeah, done that and for some reason pip just isn't present.  Installed it manually and it's all working now.
