Installation / Update / Uninstallation
There are two ways to install pyenv. The PyPi support is not tested by many users yet, so the direct way is still recommended if you want to play it safe.
In general, compiling your own Python interpreter requires the installation of the appropriate libraries and packages. The installation wiki provides a list of these for common operating systems.
Github way (recommended)
$ curl -L https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv-installer/raw/master/bin/pyenv-installer | bash
$ pyenv update
pyenv is installed within
~/.pyenv). To uninstall, just remove it:
$ rm -fr ~/.pyenv
and remove these three lines from
export PATH="~/.pyenv/bin:$PATH" eval "$(pyenv init -)" eval "$(pyenv virtualenv-init -)"
If you need, export USE_GIT_URI to use git:// instead of https:// for git clone.
WARNING still a very hacky proof of concept. Does not work with Python 3 at all yet and in Python 2 only with the use of the --egg parameter.
$ pip install --egg pyenv
In the current implementation updates and uninstallation works exactly like the github way.
pip freeze will not show pyenv as installed as this tool is just a
thin wrapper around the shell install script.
Development and testing
The project on github contains a setup for vagrant to test the installer inside a vagrant managed virtual image.
If you don't know vagrant yet: just install the latest package, open a shell in this project directory and say
$ vagrant up $ vagrant ssh
Now you are inside the vagrant container and your prompt should like
The project (this repository) is mapped into the vagrant image at /vagrant
$ cd /vagrant $ python setup.py install $ echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.pyenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc $ echo 'eval "$(pyenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc $ echo 'eval "$(pyenv virtualenv-init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc $ source ~/.bashrc
Pyenv should be installed and responding now.
