Why would you use a virtual environment?

  • Virtual environments create a “bubble” around your project so that any libraries or packages you install within it don’t affect your entire machine.
  • Teams with remote employees use virtual environments so they can share code, do code reviews, and collaborate remotely.
  • Virtual environments were common in Python 2 because they augmented missing features in the language. Virtual environments are not necessary in Python 3 due to advancements in the language.
  • Virtual environments are tied to your GitHub or Bitbucket account, allowing you to access any of your repos virtually from any machine.
