Virtualenv Commands
-------------------
Virtualenv is a very useful tool that can create isolated Python
environments. This package provides an extended API and additional
commands for inspecting and manipulating virtual environments.
These utilities are provided:
ve -- a wrapper command used to execute ve-* commands
ve-init -- create and environment by invoking virtualenv
ve-extend -- chain virtualenvs together
ve-clone -- create a new virtualenv by copying an existing one
The ``ve`` command will execute any ``ve-*`` program found in the
current execution path as a subcommand (like git). For example,
``ve-init foo`` and ``ve init foo`` run the same program. This
paradigm is extensible and enforces consistent semantics. Additional,
host-specific commands to be easily written by anyone.
Another project called virtualenvwrapper also provides additional
commands for interacting with virtual environments by creating shell
subroutines. In contrast, this project is a python-centric command
framework.
