Python Problem Overview
I want Pipenv to make virtual environment in the same folder with my project (Django).
I searched and found the
PIPENV_VENV_IN_PROJECT option but I don't know where and how to use this.
Solution 1 - Python
PIPENV_VENV_IN_PROJECT is an environment variable, just set it (the value doesn't matter, but must not be empty). Make sure to export it so child processes of the shell can see it:
This causes the virtualenv to be created in the
.venv directory next to the
Pipfile file. Use
unset PIPENV_VENV_IN_PROJECT to remove the option again.
You may want to see if the
direnv project can be useful here. It'll set environment variables for you, automatically, when you enter your project directory, provided you created a
.envrc file in the project directory and enabled the directory with
direnv. You then can add any such
export commands to that file.
Solution 2 - Python
This maybe help someone else.. I find another easy way to solve this!
Just make empty folder inside your project and name it
and pipenv will use this folder.
Solution 3 - Python
PIPENV_VENV_IN_PROJECT=1 pipenv sync -d
Solution 4 - Python
For the fish shell, use:
set -Ux PIPENV_VENV_IN_PROJECT 1
Solution 5 - Python
For posterity's sake, if you find pipenv is not creating a virtual environment in the proper location, you may have an erroneous Pipfile somewhere, confusing the
pipenv shell call - in which case I would delete it form path locations that are not explicitly linked to a repository.
