A fast and easy python virtual environment created for linux with some optional pre-installed libraries.


The following need to be installed (installation commands are for Ubuntu / Debian):

  • python3:
    • sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
    • sudo apt install python3
  • pip3:
    • sudo apt install python3-pip
  • python-venv:
    • python3 -m pip install –user virtualenv

Quick Install (for Bash or Zsh):

  1. git clone git://
  2. cd python-venv-creator && ./

Manual Installation:

Download the script into the desired directory.

To run the script, the following command needs to be run:

  • source /

An alias can be added to ~/.bashrc (or ~/.zshrc etc.) to run the script, such as the following:

  • alias pyvenv=’source ~/’


If installed using the quick install method, ‘pyvenv’ is the terminal command to create a python virtual environment.
