Install additional package(s)/dependencies

I would like to use utilkit for a custom script. Home Assistant log mentioned it can’t be found/loaded. Does anyone know how to install package(s) in hassio?

I believe dependencies are only possible for components etc, and must available on PyPi.

When I try the below, it gives me some options. Any advise how to use the install command to install utilkit…?

core-ssh:~# install utilkit
BusyBox v1.26.2 (2017-05-23 16:46:32 GMT) multi-call binary.

Usage: install [-cdDsp] [-o USER] [-g GRP] [-m MODE] [-t DIR] [SOURCE]... DEST

Copy files and set attributes

-c	Just copy (default)
-d	Create directories
-D	Create leading target directories
-s	Strip symbol table
-p	Preserve date
-o USER	Set ownership
-g GRP	Set group ownership
-m MODE	Set permissions
-t DIR	Install to DIR

I succeeded to download the package from git

core-ssh:~# git clone

What is next…

I would also like to know the answer to this question. Using Hassio has many advantages, but the main disadvantage is you are unable to install anything, and for whatever reason, in the RPi image, they inexplicably decided to leave out the raspberrypi package. Thus one cannot use the Raspberry Pi camera component, for example, because the raspistill command is not available.
