PADE in a Python Virtual Environment

When you work with Python modules is important to know how create and manipulate virtual environments for managing project dependencies in a more ordenated way. Here we will show how you could create a Python virtual environment, activate it and use the pip commandto install PADE framework. For a more specific view about Python virtual environments take a look at: Python Guide.

First, you will need the virtualenv installed in your PC. Install it typing:

$ pip install virtualenv

After installing virtualenv it’s time to create an virtual environment, using the following command:

$ cd my_project_folder
$ virtualenv venv

To activate the virtual environment, type:

$ source venv/bin/activate

Now, you can install PADE from pip or GitHub repository:

$ pip install pade


You can use the excellent Python distribution for numeric and scientific computation Anaconda. See how to do this here: AnacondaInc.
