A pipenv plugin for tox

Project description


Updates Python 3

A Tox plugin to replace the default use of virtualenv with Pipenv.

This is a convenient way to retain your use of Pipenv, whilst testing multiple versions of Python.


pip install tox-pipenv


pipenv install tox-pipenv

Creating virtual environments

With this plugin, tox will use pipenv --python {python binary} as given to the tox interpreter for each python path.

If you already have virtual environments cached with tox, use the –recreate flag to recreate them with pipenv.

Note: Tox will pass the –site-packages flag to pipenv if this is configured in your Tox config.

The Pipfile will exist in .tox/{env}/Pipfile as well as Pipfile.lock

Installing requirements

The installation of requirements from your tox config will be passed to pipenv install for installation into the virtual environment. This replaces the use of pip within tox.

requirements.txt files will also be parsed by Pipenv and used for each test environment

Executing tests

Each of the commands in your testenv configuration will be passed to pipenv to execute within the pipenv virtual environment


This plugin needs work, namely:

  • Tox always calls pip freeze to show versions, this is not yet pluggable
