v is a tiny utility for managing python virtual environments.

Calling v will open a new shell that will use a virtualenv, skipping the activate or workon scripts. It will call the mkvirtualenv and activate scripts that virtualenvwrapper uses if they exist.

Usage

v [name] [python]

By default, v will create a new virtualenv in ~/.virtualenvs/default and then start a new shell inside it. The name argument is the name of the virtualenv to use, and will default to default. The python argument is a python version to use, and will use the system's python by default. It is not needed when activating a virtualenv.

The default name, python and home directory can be overridden with $V_DEFAULT_NAME, $V_DEFAULT_PYTHON and $V_HOME. The home directory will fall back to the value of $WORKON_HOME (used by virtualenvwrapper) and then $HOME/.virtualenvs.

'Deactivating' the virtualenv is as simple as exiting the shell (exit or ctrl-d), returning you to the shell you we using before.

Installation

Install v to ~/.local/bin/v with:

pip install --user v

You may need to add ~/.local/bin to your $PATH.

Hooks

v supports a limited set of the hooks provided by virtualenvwrapper. Hooks are looked for in the current $V_HOME directory when v is run. premkvirtualenv and premkvirtualenv are sourced immediately after a virtualenv is created (nothing is run between them). preactivate is run before exporting the virtualenv environment variables, and postactivate is sourced just before the new shell is started.

Testing

Running the tests requires tox (which installs the package) and bats (which checks the script can be run):

tox
