Python virtual environment creator


virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments, each invokable with its own Python executable. Each instance can have different sets of modules, installable via pip. Virtual Python instances can also be created without root access.

Since Python 3.3, a subset of it has been integrated into the standard library under the venv module (python3-venv in Debian). The venv module does not offer all features of this library, to name just a few more prominent ones:

 * is slower (by not having the app-data seed method),
 * is not as extendable,
 * cannot create virtual environments for arbitrarily installed python
   versions (and automatically discover these),
 * does not have as rich programmatic API (describe virtual environments
   without creating them).

This is the Python 3 version of the library. It includes the command line script.
