virtualfish

A simple tool for using Python virtualenvs with the Fish shell.
Source code Documentation

A Fish Shell wrapper for Ian Bicking's virtualenv, somewhat loosely based on Doug Hellman's virtualenvwrapper for Bourne-compatible shells.

You can get started by reading the documentation on Read The Docs. (It's quite short, I promise.)

A quickstart, for the impatient

  1. pip install virtualfish
  2. Edit ~/.config/fish/config.fish, adding a line that reads eval (python -m virtualfish)
  3. Add virtualfish to your prompt
  4. vf new myvirtualenv; which python

See the docs to find out more about virtualenvwrapper emulation, auto-activation and other plugins, extending virtualfish with events, and more.
