Venv, a Better Virtualenv

Venv, a Better Virtualenv

If you like me like to create virtual environments for everything, then you’ll already sold on the idea of virtualenvs. The good news is that since Python 3.3 there’s a new module part of standard python: venv.

This is awesome since it’s bundled in python. That means no more weird downloading of random packages, to get another installation. A simple call is enough:

python -m venv /path/to/new/virtual/environment

If you’re still using Python 2.7, venv is not an option, but only virtualenv. But to be honest, you need to probably move away from Python 2.7 anyway.
