relocatable python virtual environment
package inspired a lot by ian bicking's virtualenv but created in fashion that it can be relocated freely through the filesystem.
you can install this package from pypi:
pip install RVirtualEnv # or easy_install RVirtualEnv # or just clone this repository
to create new virtual environment just call:
virtualenv ~/PYENV1 # or directly from this repo ./virtualenv.py ~/PYENV2
to enable environment, do:
# on unix export PYTHONPATH=~/PYENV1:$PYTHONPATH # on windows set PYTHONPATH=c:\PYENV1;%PYTHONPATH%
after that, you can call any python command (eg: pip or easy_install, ipython, ...) and it will have access to your virtual environment.
if you don't want to mess up with environment, just call our wrapper:
# on unix ~/PYENV1/bin/python [any [params]] # on win c:\PYENV1\Scripts\python.bat [any [params]]
it should work with mod-wsgi python-path option as well, and you can enable it in runtime via site.addsitedir(venv_directory).
if you are interested in testing this package, it should support many standard ways of running tests. nose is used for test discovery.
you can run any of these commands:
- python setup.py test
in the setup.py case you just have to wait a little, until setuptools_dummy are downloaded, because it is a build dependency.
i tested this package on:
- archlinux with python 2.6
- ms windows with python 2.6
- debian lenny with python 2.5
- debian etch with python 2.4
i don't have any automated testing set up yet.
