Nice article.

I'm a fan of pyenv and virtualenv, but I install pyenv + pyenv-virtualenvwrapper and I skip pyenv-virtualenv which gives the nice features of virtualenvwrapper without needing the rest. So workon, mkvirtualenv, and hooks all work well.

Throwing this out there for anyone wondering if virtualenvwrapper still works.

Really good point! Thanks for pointing that out.

I didn't explore virtualenvwrapper in this article because I was hoping to be cross-platform, and I don't believe virtualenvwrapper works on Windows. I would love to be wrong, as I hear good things about it.
