The addition of pyproject.toml in PR 13994 causes pip install -e into a user site directory to fail. See thread on the original PR.

Nick Pope proposes three possible options:

  1. The documentation approach -- using --no-build-isolation with pip install --editable --user will work.
  2. Add the following hack to in Django:
    import site
    import sys
    site.ENABLE_USER_SITE = '--user' in sys.argv[1:]
  3. Revert the change that added build-system isolation until there is a blessed solution for editable installs with PEP 517.

Agreed, we should do something. I'd prefer the second option.
