Working With Pipenv

Managing multiple Python projects with their own third-party packages can get complicated. It is best practice to use a virtual environment to sandbox the requirements for each of your projects. Enter pipenv, the official recommended package management tool for Python. It handles both installation and virtual environments to help you manage your Python dependencies.

In this course, you’ll learn about:

  • How to use pip to install a package
  • Where Python puts packages by default
  • How to use pipenv to create virtual environments and install packages
  • How pipenv handles package conflicts
