Pipenv is a tool that aims to bring the best of all packaging worlds (bundler, composer, npm, cargo, yarn, etc.) to the Python world.
It automatically creates and manages a virtualenv for your projects, as well as adds/removes packages from your Pipfile as you install/uninstall packages. It also generates the ever-important Pipfile.lock, which is used to produce deterministic builds.
- Enables truly deterministic builds, while easily specifying only what you want.
- Generates and checks file hashes for locked dependencies.

- Automatically loads

The main commands are
lock, which generates a
Pipfile.lock. These are intended to replace
$ pip install usage, as well as manual virtualenv management (to activate a virtualenv, run
$ pipenv shell).
- A virtualenv will automatically be created, when one doesn't exist.
- When no parameters are passed to
install, all packages
[packages]specified will be installed.
- Otherwise, whatever virtualenv defaults to will be the default.
shellwill spawn a shell with the virtualenv activated.
runwill run a given command from the virtualenv, with any arguments forwarded (e.g.
$ pipenv run python).
