I developed an application with python flask framework.I have account in shared host. they support python and i have ssh access to server. But when i tried

pip install flask


easy_install flask

it say no write permission in bin folder. So the possible solution is install flask in local directory. How can i install flask locally without sudo permission ?

Have you read the Flask Installation Documentation? You will still have to ask your hosting provider to install virtualenv for you if it isn't already available. – Ladadadada Aug 1 '13 at 13:34

pip has an option to install to your home directory.

pip install --user flask
