Install Python packages in an isolated virtual environment

Project description

Python packages are great. Virtual environments are great. Installing tools from PyPI is awesome. Installing multiple unrelated packages simultaneously in the one virtual environment can be chaos. You might want docker-compose, tox, and aws all available globally, but you don’t want them stepping on each others toes inside the same virtual environment. This is what pisque helps with!

pisque will create a sequestered virtual environment, install a package and its dependencies using pip, and symlink any installed executables into your ~/.local/bin.

$ pisque install tox
Creating virtual environment ~/.local/share/pisque/environments/tox...
Installing dependencies...
Linking installed executables to ~/.local/bin
  * tox
$ pisque install docker-compose
Creating virtual environment ~/.local/share/pisque/environments/docker-compose...
Installing dependencies...
Linking installed executables to ~/.local/bin
  * docker-compose


pisque can be installed just like any other Python package. You probably want to install it in its own isolated virtual environment though, for exactly the same reasons that you want to use pisque in the first place! The following bash snippet will install pisque to a scratch virtual environment, then use pisque to install pisque:

$ VIRTUAL_ENV=$( mktemp --directory --tmpdir "pisque-venv.XXXXXX" )
$ python3 -m venv "$VIRTUAL_ENV"
$ "$VIRTUAL_ENV/bin/pip" install pisque
$ "$VIRTUAL_ENV/bin/pisque" install pisque
$ rm -rf "$VIRTUAL_ENV"
