What pythons are currently supported in this fork:

  • Python 2.6
  • PyPy
  • PyPy3 (on Windows it doesn't really work cause pip is broken on the 2.4.0 release <>_)
  • Python 2.6
  • Python 2.7
  • Python 3.2 (tested but unsupported, check test results for exact situation)
  • Python 3.3
  • Python 3.4

What's currently tested (on Windows |appveyor| and Linux |circleci| |travis|):

  • creation
  • recreation
  • --system-site-packages (incl. ordering of sites)
  • .pth support

To install::

Option 2: development version `````````````````````````````

Option 3: release with different name `````````````````````````````````````

pip install virtualenv-rewrite

.. note::

If you install it over the legacy virtualenv you may have issues. To keep things simple you should uninstall it
before, eg::

    pip uninstall virtualenv
    pip install virtualenv-rewrite
