Project:Python/Wheels packages in Gentoo
This page lists packages that are currently available only in wheels format. Gentoo currently has no support for installing python packages that are released in the wheels (.whl) format, beyond manual installation of package metadata and installing modules manually. The wheels format was created with the intention of installing images of python packages, without calling setup.py and relying on code execution.

If possible, work around .whl files by either using a git commit to pull the sources, or finding an alternate method of obtaining the sources. Occasionally this means playing ball with GitHub or other third-party hosting sites.
