it would help to show where exactly (which folder) does requests get installed into, in both venv and global.

Dan, how to add venv in .gitignore ?

Ricky White RP Team on Feb. 8, 2020

You can add you environment to your .gitignore file by just specifying the name. So if you called it venv you would put venv/ into your .gitignore file.

Why don’t you need to use “pip3” to install packages inside the virtual environment? The examples given change to “pip”

Dan Bader RP Team on July 11, 2020

Once you’ve activated the virtual environment pip will refer to the correct version of the pip package manager automatically, so you no longer need to use the pip3 command at that point.
