Attempting to install Zappa on MacOS with:

pip install zappa

I get an error:

error: could not create '/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/requestlogger': Permission denied

Searching for this error I found similar errors installing other packages, and the recommendation seems to be to use the -home option to install to your home dir. So instead, this worked:

pip install --home zappa
