In this Python Programming Tutorial, we will be learning how to use Pipenv. Pipenv is a new package manager that combines pip and virtualenv into one easy-to-use tool. We will learn how to install pipenv, how to install new packages, how to manage our newly created environment for our project, and also look at some more advanced use cases. Let’s get started…

    one thing i didnt understadn….your project was called "shell" and you just went into it by doing pipenv shell, but if i created another virtualenvironment …what woudl that be called…you need some way to call it what you want..rather than it just defaulting to shell…doesnt make sense.
    your project was just created by doing ..pipenv install django…and it got the name shell..from the ETHER….seems like a bad idea..

    So can we use pipenv instead of virtualenv and virtualenvwrapper???

    That was before and this is now, i always hated and was confused by environments and such…thanks for fixing me 🙂

    Hi Corey, how do I get a pipenv enviroment app and a cronjob working. A cronjob runs in non-interactive shells, but entering the environment will output "Loading .env environment variables…"! Thanks a lot!

    I installed anaconda "add to paths", so now it is a pissing contest between the conda env and pipenv. 😂

    Always love your video, so informative!
    How about the env function in Pycharm. Is it better than pipenv or not? And do you recommend it?

    hey Corey – thanks for this super clear tutorial!

    It's been a little over a year since you made this, and I was wondering if your thoughts on pipenv > virtualenv et al have changed (for better or worse) at all?

    I've run into some prohibitively slow install/lock times on a work windows machine and I've read about other more annoying problems (https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/5854) and just wanted to know if you've run into similar/other issues with pipenv?

    Thanks again!

    Took me a while to find this info, maybe useful to others: if you need to generate a requirements.txt file you can do it with pipenv lock -r

    Pipenv is really a handy tool.

    Hi, I use PyCharm and the version i have generate a virtual env for every new project i create. However, in some applications i want to execute my scripts from the command prompt. Thing is i don't have the libraries i imported in my venv while running my script from the cmd. Any ideas on how i can fix this ? Do i need to start my virtual environment prior to launching the script, or do i need to download the desired libraries in my global python environment per say… Also i'm on windows in case you want to write me some command lines to start my venv for example.

    Thanks in advance

    This was kinda intimidating topic for me but now no more

    Love your videos Corey, thanks for sharing. I wonder if there's a way to mark where certain sub topics are in your video. I know you recently asked in your community page if people preferred short or long videos. Having the marks in this video would help people navigate, for example if they were interested in pipenv but specifically how to implement dev features. Just a thought, but thank you!!!

    It is a little more complicated using Linux as subsystem, but great work!

    Thank you for the video sir, it really helped a lot but i would not understand some of the terms like dev environment and production environment? Please explain it to me sir!

    Your vid's are always so informative and it's appreciated thank you!
    I'm currently using python's 'venv', so would this be a better option to use pipenv for multiple projects?

    Sir, I have a question !!
    If we don't push our .env file into production/repo, then how our program can read the information we have (database connection, secret key info etc..) on it?

    I'm waiting for your answer. Thanks for everything, sir <3

    Any Idea Why I get this error "No such file or directory: 'Pipfile' ", when I run the command 'pipenv install -r requirements.txt'. Do let me know if anyone has a workaround for this problem. Have been looking all over the internet.

    Hi Corey, do you think docker will kill virtual environment? or they support each other? Could you create a video for that: Docker vs virtual environment, need your opinion for that. Thanks.

    Isn't pipenv depreciated since we have the venv command which comes by default with python3?

  40. John Wolf December 30, 2019 at 12:52 am - Reply

    I'm confused: All your installs of packages were outside your virtual env work area and went into the Pipfile – great. But if I'm inside the virtual envir via 'pipenv shell', the installs don't show up in the Pipfile. I would assume if you install outside the venv the installs would not be used when inside the venv…? Explain please. Or is the process you used the right way to install packages, and then move into the venv via 'pipenv shell' to work. For example, will django files be in the right place if installed before a 'pipenv shell' command?

  41. Ouaddah Bergam December 30, 2019 at 12:52 am - Reply

    Can you switch to pipenv after you've been using venv for a while? Or do you have to start a new project?

  42. jorjolandes December 30, 2019 at 12:52 am - Reply

    if im inside the env shell and i want to install a package, should i use pip install [package] or pipenv install [package]?

    Its great but the lock takes forever to complete. I hope they solve this issue.

    Corey, please advise should Pipfile and Pipfile.lock be committed to version control (GitHub) ?
