I am setting up a django project and i am using python for this. I heard that the best way to this is by setting up a virtual environment. I installed my virtual environment by typing the command in my command promp by using:


pip install virtualenvwrappwer-win

But when I want to use that virtual environment it shows me no module named virtualenvwrapper.

If I can not load my virtual environment I can not start my project. I am new In django if anyone know the solution please help me to set up my project.

If you want to se up a django project the best way to do this is by creating a virtual environment because you don’t want to disturb the entire system. You have created a virtual environment but you can’t work on that becasue you need a separate environment to work on it. After typing the command:


pip install virtualenvwrapper-win

you need to set another command by typing:


mkvirtualenv test

test is basically a name for a environment . You can use other name if you want . Then again go to your command prompt and type:

       workon test[note: test is a basic name, use what you have given your environment name] 

It should work.

To set up your django project you need to install django by using the command:


 pip install django


 pip install django==the specific version you need


Then you check in the link for setting up your project.
