Introduction to Pew - A Python Library for Creating Virtual Environments
If you're a Python developer, you know the importance of using a virtual environment for your projects. Pew is a Python library that allows you to create and manage virtual environments with ease. In this article, we'll take a look at how to use Pew to create and manage virtual environments.
What is Pew?
Pew is a Python library that provides a set of commands to create and manage virtual environments. It is similar to other virtual environment tools like virtualenv and conda. The difference is that Pew provides additional features and commands that make it easier to work with virtual environments.
To install Pew, use the following command:
sudo pip3 install pew
Getting Started with Pew
Once you have Pew installed, you can create a new virtual environment by using the
mkproject command. This command creates a new virtual environment and switches to it:
pew mkproject myproject
Now, you are in your new virtual environment. If you want to exit the virtual environment, you can use the
exit command. To see a list of your virtual environments, use the
ls command. To switch to a different virtual environment, use the
workon command followed by the name of the virtual environment:
pew workon myproject
That's it! You now know how to use Pew to create and manage virtual environments.
Virtual environments are an essential tool for Python developers. They allow you to work with different versions of Python and project dependencies without affecting your system configuration.
Pew makes it easy to create and manage virtual environments, and it provides additional features and commands that make it even more useful. Try it out for yourself and see how it can improve your Python development workflow.
