Why not pip freeze > requirements.txt from active virtual environment?
Artem Ivasyuk

In terms of adding to local.txt for example?

This is done such that changes made to requirements.txt do not have to be copied over with pip freeze every time a change is made. Local and production requirements will have more packages later and will simply build off of base.txt
