A tool for creating virtualenv-friendly Sublime Text project files

Project description

Subvenv makes the creation of virtualenv-friendly Sublime Text 2/3 project files as easy as subvenv make_project (or even skipping it by integrating it with Virtualenwrapper!).

Create your virtualenv, run subvenv, and you’re ready to code.

Bonus point: besides saving you the time of manually creating a project files, it also makes linting plugins like Anaconda and SublimePythonIDE work out of the box!


You can install the latest stable release via pip:

$ pip install subvenv

If you prefer the development version instead, you can install it from source:

$ git clone
$ python install

Virtualenvwrapper projects integration

Using Virtualenvwrapper projects removes the need of manually running Subvenv. Project creation will activate Subvenv behind the scenes and a Sublime project file will be automagically created inside the project folder.

Simply create a new virtualenv with

$ mkproject <project_name>

and a <project_name>.sublime-project file will be placed in your /your/project/home/<project_name>/. Open it with Sublime Text and you are ready to go.

Usage as a standalone

If you don’t want to pass through a Virtualenwrapper project

$ subvenv make_project

will create a <virtualenv_name>.sublime-project file in the current working directory.

You can also specify a location different than the current folder by using the --folder flag

$ subvenv make_project --folder=path/to/target_folder

Supported Python versions

Subvenv is tested under Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6.

Supported virtualenv managers

Subvenv supports Virtualenv, Virtualenwrapper, and pyvenv.

Any other virtualenv manager making use of the VIRTUALENV environment variable should probably work too.


Are highly appreciated :)

Just follow PEP8 if you’re going to submit code.
