This is an oldie, but a goodie.

Python devs love virtualenv. I love virtualenv. Who doesn't love virtualenv?

If you're unfamiliar, it's a tool to create isolated Python environments.

As a dev, honing your environment and tools to optimize your coding experience is pretty commonplace. I have a bunch of virtualenvs and associated projects on my machine. When I activate a virtualenv, I imagine that I want to work on that virtualenv's associated project about 99.9% of the time. So why not automatically move into that directory?

Customizing a .virtualenvs/<project name>/bin/postactivate file per project can be tedious, so I wrote this script to smooth out that experience:

Just copy setupvirtualenv and postactivate_template into your ~/.bin/ directory, chmod 755 on setupvirtualenv, and you'll be up and running.

Happy Tuesday!
