I work with pipenv on a daily basis, I feel confident I can help you with this issue.
I realised that the virtual environment required python3.11.0
No, technically, pipenv requires 3.8 or greater.
Question: what’s the difference between python and python3 when entering the python interpreter?
The Python3 command was introduced because the python command pointed to python2. Since then, Python3 has become the default and thus python points to python3 on most but not all systems. So in other words, if you just have Python 3 + on your machine, and not Python 2, you can use Python , if you have both you will use Python3, Does this makes sense?
Specifying Versions of Python
How do I control which versions they choose?
By default, Pipenv will initialize a project using whatever version of python the system has as default. To create a new virtualenv, using a specific version of Python you have installed (and on your
PATH), use the
--python VERSION flag, like so:
Use Python 3:
pipenv --python 3
pipenv --python 3.6
Use Python 2.7.14:
pipenv --python 2.7.14
When given a Python version, like this, Pipenv will automatically scan your system for a Python that matches that given version.
Please note: To do this, the specific version of Python you want to use must be installed, and on your PATH!
Specifying Versions of a Package
Likewise, you can specify versions of packages as well. For example, to install requests you can use:
pipenv install requests~=1.2
This will update your Pipfile to reflect this requirement, automatically.
Example of Pipenv Workflow
These are the steps to follow when working with pipenv:
- Install from Pipfile, if there is one:
Or, add a package to your new project
pipenv install <package>
This will create a Pipfile if one doesn’t exist. If one does exist, it will automatically be edited with the new package you provided.
- Next, activate the Pipenv shell
