virtualenv with python

Posted by Kyle R. Conway - January 26, 2019

I've used conda and virtualenv's before (notably on my shared server to run my @dicewarebot on twitter), but as I'm getting more and more into coding a wide variety of things with different dependencies it's becoming essential that I get up to speed with virtual environments.

At the moment I'm going through a tutorial that uses virtualenv, so I'm mostly taking these notes here for myself.

[make venv] [use python 3] [create here '.']
virtualenv -p python3 .

activate with:

source bin/activate
