Tool to create virtualenvs, manage versions of packages in it and use it start a particular program

Project Description

Program to bootstrap a virtualenv for your program!

Full documentation at


Just use pip!::

$ pip install venvstarter


I used to manage this kind of bootstrap script with bash, similar to how I
manage the virtualenv for the documentation for this project.

The problem with that approach is it becomes difficult to enforce particular
versions of python and, in particular, multiple dependencies in a way that
doesn't involve some pretty horrible code. So I made this :)


.. automodule:: venvstarter

.. autoclass:: venvstarter.Starter

.. autofunction:: venvstarter.ignite
