Original comments from Marmaduke:
I would suggest also looking at Conda Forge, which is where many projects in scientific community are going, when compiled binary packages are required. TVB doesn't have compiled code, but it does have several dependencies which require a compiler when installing from PyPI with pip, but can use precompiled packages when installing from Conda Forge with conda.
Conda Forge is here: https://conda-forge.org/
I forgot to add that they build packages for Mac, Windows & Linux.
