What is virtualenvwrapper

virtualenvwrapper is a set of extensions to Ian Bicking's virtualenv tool. The extensions include wrappers for creating and deleting virtual environments and otherwise managing your development workflow, making it easier to work on more than one project at a time without introducing conflicts in their dependencies.

What's New in 2.1

The primary purpose of this release is a set of enhancements to support virtualenvwrapper.project, a new extension to manage project work directories with templates. 2.1 also includes several smaller changes and bug fixes.

  • Add support for ksh. Thanks to Doug Latornell for doing the research on what needed to be changed.
  • Test import of virtualenvwrapper.hook_loader on startup and report the error in a way that should help the user figure out how to fix it (issue #33).
  • Update mkvirtualenv documentation to include the fact that a new environment is activated immediately after it is created (issue #30).
  • Added hooks around cpvirtualenv.
  • Made deactivation more robust, especially under ksh.
  • Use Python's tempfile module for creating temporary filenames safely and portably.
  • Fix a problem with virtualenvwrapper_show_workon_options that caused it to show * as the name of a virtualenv when no environments had yet been created.
  • Change the hook loader so it can be told to run only a set of named hooks.
  • Add support for listing the available hooks, to be used in help output of commands like virtualenvwrapper.project's mkproject.
  • Fix mkvirtualenv -h option behavior.
  • Change logging so the $WORKON_HOME/hook.log file rotates after 10KiB.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
