#43638 new defect

py27-virtualenvwrapper: Does not use virtualenv with appropriate suffix

Reported by: Tatsh (Andrew Udvare) Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.2.1
Keywords: Cc: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt), nerdling (Jeremy Lavergne), neverpanic (Clemens Lang), pixilla (Bradley Giesbrecht), petrrr
Port: py-virtualenvwrapper

Description is installed and can be sourced but it does not seem to want to use virtualenv-2.7 but instead wants to use virtualenv (no suffix). Maybe this is hard-coded.

It may be unnecessary to suffix with a version for these reasons:

  • It is inconsistent to not have mkvirtualenv-2.7 , rmvirtualenv-2.7 as commands
  • virtualenvwrapper is made for all relevant versions of Python (although I have no idea if it is a separate package per version, especially 2 vs 3)
  • mkvirtualenv accepts a -p argument for the path of which Python implementation to use: mkvirtualenv -p /usr/bin/python some-name (if you really wanted to)
  • If is not suffixed, it means shell configurations (bashrc) that are made to be compatible with many OS's do not need a special clause for the MacPorts version

The 'fix' to's mkvirtualenv is to use symlinks to virtualenv and relevant applications like pip. I have a script attached that creates such symlinks assuming that the version desired is 2.7. I am currently running it every so often with launchd or manually.
