Virtualenv Install Mac

When I got a Macbook Pro, the first thing I thought was how to deploy a developing environment for programming and data analysis on Mac OS. I decided to install Python3 althought macOS comes out with a native python environment Python 2.7.10. The best way I found on the Internet is from the page of David Culley where he gives several alternatives to set up a Python3 working environment. Use Pip to install Virtualenv. The next step is installing Virtualenv to use with Pyenv to manage our virtual environments and subsequent dependencies. Use the following commands to call on Pip to install Virtualenv.% pip3 install virtualenv% pip3 install virtualenvwrapper% brew install pyenv-virtualenv IV. Install pyenv-virtualenv on Mac OSX. July 25, 2021 Mac App Store. Brew install pyenv-virtualenv; Done! You can now use pyenv-virtualenv. The version you will be able to get depends on which one you choose. The simplest method is using pip to search, download and install. This might not provide you the latest stable version. Downloading virtualenv using pip: # Example: sudo pip install virtualenv sudo pip install virtualenv. Virtualenv on macOS X $ pyenv versions $ pyenv install 3.8.5 $ pyenv local 3.8.5 $ python -m pip install –user virtualenv $ python -m venv env $ source emv/bin/activate; You should see something similar to this in the terminal now (env) [email protected]% You can deactivate the virtual environment by closing the terminal or running (env.

This post explains how to install Python 3 in a Mac OS X, both Mavericks and Yosemite. Check this post if you want to clean install Python 2.7. You can also install both! 🙂

It also shows how to use virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper with Python 3. Don’t miss it!

Like with Python 2.7, we need to install first Xcode and Homebrew.

Install Xcode and Homebrew

First of all, install Xcode if you don’t have it already. You can find it in the Apple Store.

Next, we need to install the Command Line Tools of Xcode. Open a Terminal and type:

this should trigger a pop-up window that will ask you to install the Command Line Tools. If you have some trouble installing these tools, you might find useful this post on Stackoverflow.

Next, we need to install Homebrew. In the Terminal, type this command line:

Virtualenv Install Mac
$pip install virtualenvwrapper
Next, create a folder that will contain all your virtual environments:
Open your .bashrc file and add:
$mkvirtualenv--python=/usr/local/bin/python3 myenv
This creates a folder myenv inside the environments folder ~/.virtualenvs.The new environment will be active after running the previous command. To deactivate it, just type:Install virtualenv mac python 3

Virtualenv Install Mac Operating System

and to activate it again
While being in your python3 virtual envirnoment, if you type

Install Virtualenv Python2 Mac

you activate python 3! Moreover, you can use pip to call pip3 and install python3 packages.

Install Virtualenv Mac Python 2.7

For example, you can install Django 1.7 using

Pip Install Virtualenv Mac

Now, you’re ready to code!

Please give it a +1 and share it to your friends! Thanks! 🙂
