Shortcut from virtualenv to venv for python2
Provides a simple “shortcut” from virtualenv to venv on python 2.
Pretty much everything I do is in python3, where I use venv for every single project I work on.
Occasionally I need my CI to also test / build / deploy to python2 as well. As is stands, I generally end up with annoyingly complex startups scripts in ci that has to check which version is being being run and then either use python -m venv .venv on 3 or python -m pip install virtualenv; python -m virtualenv .venv for 2.
It would be much better if I could just use python -m venv .venv everywhere, but venv has not been backported. This package is a pretty decent workaround.
py2venv can be pre-installed on any python. On python3 it does nothing. On python 2 it ensures virtualenv has been installed and provides a ‘venv’ module entrypoint:
python -m pip install py2venv python -m venv .venv
