Best way to install a python module

I’ve noticed that there are two main way to install a python module:

  1. Use pacman -S <python-module>
  2. Use pip install <module>

In my little experience I notice that the second option cause less problem with installation, but it will not update py-modules automatically, right?
Also, This link sustain pip is the best way to achieve that.
Anyway, my primary question is: so why are there manjaro py-packages? What’s the pros&cons of the two option?

Thank you for bearing my “noob-ness”.

Use the distro’s repository unless you want to invite the possibility of breakage through dependency hell.
Per-project you would use pip in env.
