Screencasts PIP and virtualenv
Improve your local Python development by creating virtual environments with Virtualenv and with simple package installation and management using PIP. In this 17 minute video, Greg Aker shows you how to put both together to easily create reusable Python development environments.
PIP is a tool used to install Python packages and it is a replacement for Easy Install. In additional to allowing you to install packages from the Python Package Index, it also allows you to install packages from public and private git, subversion and mercurial repositories. PIP makes is simple to manage Python packages.
Virtualenv allows you to create virtual environments so you can protect your global Python installation while still having environments set up specifically for the application or project you’re working on. Install packages and configure the environment as you wish and it will be sandboxed and not affect your global Python installation.
