A zc.buildout extension for run buildout under virtual python environment.

Project description

cykooz.buildout.venv is a zc.buildout extension that creates virtual python environment and use it to run buildout.


Add cykooz.buildout.venv to the extensions entry in your [buildout] section:

extensions = cykooz.buildout.venv

This enables additional [buildout] option:


This specifies the directory where virtual environment will be created. Defaults to parts/venv.

If this directory already has a virtual python environment and it version is equal to version of python used to run buildout, then this environment will be used to run buildout without any changes.

extensions = cykooz.buildout.venv
venv-directory = ${buildout:parts-directory}/myvenv
