Virtualenv - projects using different versions of modules


Python 3.6

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deadsnakes/ppa
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install python3.6
  4. sudo curl | sudo python3.6

Update line depending on available:

  1. sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python3 python3 /usr/bin/python3.5 1
  2. sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/python3 python3 /usr/bin/python3.6 2
  3. sudo update-alternatives --config python3
  1. sudo pip3 install virtualenv virtualenvwrapper

add the following to the end of ~/.bashrc

  1. # ADDED RJM for virtualenv
  2. export VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python3
  3. export WORKON_HOME=~/virtualenvs
  4. source /usr/local/bin/

Setup new project

  1. mkvirtualenv dockJob

Work on project

  1. workon dockJob


  1. deactivate

Other notes

I have had to install nose and rednose in virtualenvs because they refer to python and were leaving the virtualenv
I had problem with depdancies that was caused by modules not specfying the version of pytz required. To resolve I had to remove than manually install the one I wanted.

  1. sudo pip install -r ./src/requirments.txt


pip check version

  1. pip show modulename

Simple web server

Used for SOA Component Viewer

  1. python -m http.server 8000

Python3 might be a different executable:

  1. python3 -m http.server 8000

Running individual unit test

In my superclass put:

  1. from nose.plugins.attrib import attr
  2. def wipd(f):
  3.     return attr('wip')(f)

Import wipd from the class

for tests to be run add annotation:

  1.   @wipd
  2.   def test_basicTest(self):
  3.     self.assertFalse(True)

Also works against class

  1. @wipd
  2. class test_objectStoresTenantAware(local_helpers):
  4.   def test_basicTest(self):
  5.     self.assertFalse(True)

continous test script looks like:

  1. #!/bin/bash
  3. echo 'To test one file pass filename as first param'
  4. echo 'e.g. sudo ./'
  6. if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then
  7.   until ack -f --python  ./object_store_abstraction ./tests | entr -d nosetests --rednose ./tests; do sleep 1; done
  8. else
  9.   echo "Only testing tagged - ${1}"
  10.   until ack -f --python  ./object_store_abstraction ./tests | entr -d nosetests --rednose -a ${1}; do sleep 1; done
  11. fi

and can be run
./continous_test wpi
