Jupyter Notebook in a virtual environment (virtualenv)
I love Jupyter Notebook. I use it all the time.
I’ve been looking to use it with a Django App to profile timing and memory usage of specific function but first I had to get it running in a virtual environment.
Make sure you have virtualenv installed
pip install virtualenv
Create a virtual environment
Note: I like to use a
. in front of my virtual environments so the folder is hidden.
Get inside the environment
or in shorthand
You can verify quickly you are in the environment by running
which python which will return the path of the python executable in the environment if all went well
Install a Jupyter kernel
This will install a kernel inside the environment, to use to run in the Jupyter notebook there:
ipython kernel install --user --name=.venv
Run Jupyter, and select the .venv kernel to run the notebook
