Setting up Python 101¶
First we will set up a virtual environment using the
venv module of
$ python3 -m venv ~/.virtualenvs/python101
The virtual environment can be activated via
$ source ~/.virtualenvs/python101/bin/activate
If everything went fine you should see that your shell prompt now starts with
(python101). This means that everything you do with regards to Python now
uses this virtual environment.
To make sure that the Python packages that are required for installing other Python packages are up to date execute the following command:
$ pip install --upgrade pip setuptools
Now we will clone the Python 101 repository using git.
$ git clone https://github.com/ZeeD26/python101.git
We enter the newly created directory
$ cd python101
and install Python 101 along with its dependencies
$ python -m pip install -e .
python -m pip install -e is important!
python -m pip install -e is not sufficient.
