virtualenvwrapper configuration

There are files for hooks and configuration is very straight forward.
I’d like to create a new folder named src for storing all the code base. Then, change directory to the new folder. Let’s see what I can do.

There is postrmvirtualenv file under $WORKON_HOME. In my case, it is ~/venv.
Let’s open up the file in vi editor and add some hooks.

$ vi ~/venv/postrmvirtualenv

# Add following to the file and save.
path=$VIRTUAL_ENV/src
mkdir $path
cd $path

I’ve created a variable for the path of the source folder I mentioned. Then, create it and change directory to it.

Now, mkvirtualenv command lets you to create a new virtual env box and create a new folder called src under the project just created and change directory to the folder.

Let’s make some changes for workon command same as above.

I’d like to change directory to the src folder under the project once the project has been activated. Also, I’d like to change directory to the virtualenv root folder ~/venv once the project has been deactivated.

Open up postactivate and add below for activate behavior.

cd $VIRTUAL_ENV/src

Open up postactivate and add below for activate behavior.

cd $WORKON_HOME

That’s it and enjoy.
