I would like to install the projectile package manually since the repository is blocked by a firewall.
I have downloaded the file projectile.el from the [package homepage] put it together with helm-projectile and helm-projectile into the folder `~/.emacs.d/projectile/'.

M-x package-install-fileinstead. That will sort out the directory and load path for you, as well as telling you about missing dependencies such as
