Installing SpaCy in Repl
GarethDwyer1 (93)

SpaCy is a pretty complicated piece of software with a bunch of dependencies, and it's often hard to install even on a local machine.

It would be great if we could install this on Repl. The main errors I get when I try are:

gcc: error trying to exec 'cc1plus': execvp: No such file or directory
  error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 1

and

    gcc: error: murmurhash/mrmr.cpp: No such file or directory
    gcc: fatal error: no input files
    compilation terminated.
    error: command 'gcc' failed with exit status 4
