What is the way to install a package using pip from within Wing? For example, how to install the Bottle Python Web Framework from within Wing?

Other than starting a command from the OS Commands tool there's no way to do that now. Adding a package manager is something we hope to do in the future.

A small start on this is available in Wing 7.2+ where you can specify packages to install in the New Project dialog when creating a new virtualenv or Anaconda env with your new project.

I tried this with PyQt5, but the package gets installed into the host python and not into the Wing created virtual environment.

It does work, if I start a terminal from within Wing IDE, which is automatically in the correct virtual environment and then install via pip

pip install pyqt5

This is on a fresh install of macOS Mojave with python 3.7.7 installed via installer. WingPro (rev b4c7d93c92a9)

I think there may be a bug here so that Wing ends up running pip outside of the activated env. We'll look into fixing that soon. Thanks for pointing this out!

You could manage your project in a virtual environment, do the pip install there and set your wing project to use that environment.
