Installing Virtual env wrapper in linux

Best documentation I have found for working with virtualenvwrapper:

Assuming you have pip installed.

  1. Install virtualenv
    sudo -H pip install virtualenv
  1. Install virtualenvwrapper
    sudo -H pip install virtualenvwrapper
  1. Modify your .bashrc file to include that following lines:
    export WORKON_HOME=~/Envs
    source /usr/local/bin/
  1. Test the commands:

    • mkvirtualenv <project_name>
    • rmvirtualenv <project_name>
    • lsvirtualenv (Lists all virtual environments you have created.)

    • workon <project_name>
    • deactivate

  2. Don't use SUDO when installing inside the virtualenv

More Python Help Please

Long time programmer, trying to learn Python on my spare time.
Very helpful. Just what I needed!

Like that you convey the information without an ego getting in the way!

Excellent advice

Virtualenv was something I didn't get into until later into my learning, and it made things much nicer to work with. Thanks for bringing attention to it!

Don't tell Ken or Dave, but I'll look into doing some Django shows.
