    Simple Python Version Management: pyenv

    Join the chat at https://gitter.im/yyuu/pyenv

    Build Status

    pyenv lets you easily switch between multiple versions of Python. It's simple, unobtrusive, and follows the UNIX tradition of single-purpose tools that do one thing well.

    This project was forked from rbenv and ruby-build, and modified for Python.

    Terminal output example

    pyenv does...

    • Let you change the global Python version on a per-user basis.
    • Provide support for per-project Python versions.
    • Allow you to override the Python version with an environment variable.
    • Search commands from multiple versions of Python at a time. This may be helpful to test across Python versions with tox.

    In contrast with pythonbrew and pythonz, pyenv does not...

    • Depend on Python itself. pyenv was made from pure shell scripts. There is no bootstrap problem of Python.
    • Need to be loaded into your shell. Instead, pyenv's shim approach works by adding a directory to your $PATH.
    • Manage virtualenv. Of course, you can create virtualenv yourself, or pyenv-virtualenv to automate the process.

    Table of Contents


    How It Works

    At a high level, pyenv intercepts Python commands using shim executables injected into your PATH, determines which Python version has been specified by your application, and passes your commands along to the correct Python installation.

    Understanding PATH

    When you run a command like python or pip, your operating system searches through a list of directories to find an executable file with that name. This list of directories lives in an environment variable called PATH, with each directory in the list separated by a colon:

    /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin

    Directories in PATH are searched from left to right, so a matching executable in a directory at the beginning of the list takes precedence over another one at the end. In this example, the /usr/local/bin directory will be searched first, then /usr/bin, then /bin.

    Understanding Shims

    pyenv works by inserting a directory of shims at the front of your PATH:

    $(pyenv root)/shims:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin

    Through a process called rehashing, pyenv maintains shims in that directory to match every Python command across every installed version of Python—python, pip, and so on.

    Shims are lightweight executables that simply pass your command along to pyenv. So with pyenv installed, when you run, say, pip, your operating system will do the following:

    • Search your PATH for an executable file named pip
    • Find the pyenv shim named pip at the beginning of your PATH
    • Run the shim named pip, which in turn passes the command along to pyenv

    Choosing the Python Version

    When you execute a shim, pyenv determines which Python version to use by reading it from the following sources, in this order:

    1. The PYENV_VERSION environment variable (if specified). You can use the pyenv shell command to set this environment variable in your current shell session.

    2. The application-specific .python-version file in the current directory (if present). You can modify the current directory's .python-version file with the pyenv local command.

    3. The first .python-version file found (if any) by searching each parent directory, until reaching the root of your filesystem.

    4. The global $(pyenv root)/version file. You can modify this file using the pyenv global command. If the global version file is not present, pyenv assumes you want to use the "system" Python. (In other words, whatever version would run if pyenv weren't in your PATH.)

    NOTE: You can activate multiple versions at the same time, including multiple versions of Python2 or Python3 simultaneously. This allows for parallel usage of Python2 and Python3, and is required with tools like tox. For example, to set your path to first use your system Python and Python3 (set to 2.7.9 and 3.4.2 in this example), but also have Python 3.3.6, 3.2, and 2.5 available on your PATH, one would first pyenv install the missing versions, then set pyenv global system 3.3.6 3.2 2.5. At this point, one should be able to find the full executable path to each of these using pyenv which, e.g. pyenv which python2.5 (should display $(pyenv root)/versions/2.5/bin/python2.5), or pyenv which python3.4 (should display path to system Python3). You can also specify multiple versions in a .python-version file, separated by newlines. Lines starting with a # are ignored.

    Locating the Python Installation

    Once pyenv has determined which version of Python your application has specified, it passes the command along to the corresponding Python installation.

    Each Python version is installed into its own directory under $(pyenv root)/versions.

    For example, you might have these versions installed:

    • $(pyenv root)/versions/2.7.8/
    • $(pyenv root)/versions/3.4.2/
    • $(pyenv root)/versions/pypy-2.4.0/

    As far as Pyenv is concerned, version names are simply directories under $(pyenv root)/versions.

    Managing Virtual Environments

    There is a pyenv plugin named pyenv-virtualenv which comes with various features to help pyenv users to manage virtual environments created by virtualenv or Anaconda. Because the activate script of those virtual environments are relying on mutating $PATH variable of user's interactive shell, it will intercept pyenv's shim style command execution hooks. We'd recommend to install pyenv-virtualenv as well if you have some plan to play with those virtual environments.


    Installation

    Prerequisites:

    For pyenv to install python correctly you should install the Python build dependencies.

    Homebrew on macOS

    1. Consider installing with Homebrew:
      brew update
      brew install pyenv
    2. Then follow the rest of the post-installation steps under Basic GitHub Checkout, starting with #2 ("Configure your shell's environment for Pyenv").

    If you're on Windows, consider using @kirankotari's pyenv-win fork. (Pyenv does not work in Windows outside the Windows Subsystem for Linux.)

    The automatic installer

    Visit our other project: https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv-installer

    Basic GitHub Checkout

    This will get you going with the latest version of Pyenv and make it easy to fork and contribute any changes back upstream.

    1. Check out Pyenv where you want it installed. A good place to choose is $HOME/.pyenv (but you can install it somewhere else):

       git clone https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv.git ~/.pyenv

      Optionally, try to compile a dynamic Bash extension to speed up Pyenv. Don't worry if it fails; Pyenv will still work normally:

       cd ~/.pyenv && src/configure && make -C src
    2. Configure your shell's environment for Pyenv

      Note: The below instructions for specific shells are designed for common shell setups.
      If you have an uncommon setup and they don't work for you, use the guidance text and the Advanced Configuration section below to figure out what you need to do in your specific case.

      1. Adjust the session-wide environment for your account. Define the PYENV_ROOT environment variable to point to the path where you cloned the Pyenv repo, add the pyenv command-line utility to your PATH, run the output of pyenv init --path to enable shims.

        These commands need to be added into your shell startup files in such a way that they are executed only once per session, by its login shell. This typically means they need to be added into a per-user shell-specific ~/.*profile file, and into ~/.profile, too, so that they are also run by GUI managers (which typically act as a sh login shell).

        MacOS note: If you installed Pyenv with Homebrew, you don't need to add the PYENV_ROOT= and PATH= lines. You also don't need to add commands into ~/.profile if your shell doesn't use it.

        • For Bash:

          echo 'export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"' >> ~/.profile
          echo 'export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.profile
          echo 'eval "$(pyenv init --path)"' >> ~/.profile
          • If your ~/.profile sources ~/.bashrc (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint):

            Put these lines into ~/.profile before the part that sources ~/.bashrc:

            export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"
            export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"

            And put this line at the bottom of ~/.profile:

            eval "$(pyenv init --path)"

            Alternatively, for an automated installation, you can run the following:

            echo -e 'if shopt -q login_shell; then' \
                  '\n  export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"' \
                  '\n  export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"' \
                  '\n eval "$(pyenv init --path)"' \
                  '\nfi' >> ~/.bashrc
            echo -e 'if [ -z "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then'\
                  '\n  export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"'\
                  '\n  export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"'\
                  '\n  eval "$(pyenv init --path)"'\
                  '\nfi' >>~/.profile

          Note: If you have ~/.bash_profile, make sure that it too executes the above-added commands, e.g. by copying them there or by source'ing ~/.profile.

        • For Zsh:

          • MacOS, if Pyenv is installed with Homebrew:

            echo 'eval "$(pyenv init --path)"' >> ~/.zprofile
          • MacOS, if Pyenv is installed with a Git checkout:

            echo 'export PYENV_ROOT="$HOME/.pyenv"' >> ~/.zprofile
            echo 'export PATH="$PYENV_ROOT/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.zprofile
            echo 'eval "$(pyenv init --path)"' >> ~/.zprofile
          • Other OSes:

            Same as for Bash above, but add the commands into both ~/.profile and ~/.zprofile.

        • For Fish shell:

          Execute this interactively:

          set -Ux PYENV_ROOT $HOME/.pyenv
          set -U fish_user_paths $PYENV_ROOT/bin $fish_user_paths

          And add this to ~/.config/fish/config.fish:

          status is-interactive; and pyenv init --path | source

          If Fish is not your login shell, also follow the Bash/Zsh instructions to add to ~/.profile.

        Proxy note: If you use a proxy, export http_proxy and https_proxy, too.

      2. Add pyenv into your shell by running the output of pyenv init - to enable autocompletion and all subcommands.

        This command needs to run at startup of any interactive shell instance. In an interactive login shell, it needs to run after the commands from the previous step.

        • For bash:

          echo 'eval "$(pyenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc
          • If your /etc/profile sources ~/.bashrc (SUSE):

            echo 'if command -v pyenv >/dev/null; then eval "$(pyenv init -)"; fi' >> ~/.bashrc 
        • For Zsh:

          echo 'eval "$(pyenv init -)"' >> ~/.zshrc
        • For Fish shell: Add this to ~/.config/fish/config.fish:

          pyenv init - | source

        General warning: There are some systems where the BASH_ENV variable is configured to point to .bashrc. On such systems you should almost certainly put the above-mentioned line eval "$(pyenv init -)" into .bash_profile, and not into .bashrc. Otherwise you may observe strange behaviour, such as pyenv getting into an infinite loop. See #264 for details.

    3. Restart your login session for the changes to take effect. E.g. if you're in a GUI session, you need to fully log out and log back in.

      In MacOS, restarting terminal windows is enough (because MacOS runs shells in them as login shells by default).

    4. Install Python build dependencies before attempting to install a new Python version.

    5. Install Python versions into $(pyenv root)/versions. For example, to download and install Python 2.7.8, run:

      pyenv install 2.7.8

      NOTE: If you need to pass a configure option to a build, please use the CONFIGURE_OPTS environment variable.

      NOTE: If you want to use proxy to download, please set the http_proxy and https_proxy environment variables.

      NOTE: If you are having trouble installing a Python version, please visit the wiki page about Common Build Problems.

    Upgrading

    If you've installed Pyenv using Homebrew, upgrade using:

    brew upgrade pyenv

    If you've installed Pyenv using the instructions above, you can upgrade your installation at any time using Git.

    To upgrade to the latest development version of pyenv, use git pull:

    cd $(pyenv root)
    git pull

    To upgrade to a specific release of Pyenv, check out the corresponding tag:

    cd $(pyenv root)
    git fetch
    git tag
    git checkout v0.1.0

    Uninstalling pyenv

    The simplicity of pyenv makes it easy to temporarily disable it, or uninstall from the system.

    1. To disable Pyenv managing your Python versions, simply remove the pyenv init invocations from your shell startup configuration. This will remove Pyenv shims directory from PATH, and future invocations like python will execute the system Python version, as it was before Pyenv.

      pyenv will still be accessible on the command line, but your Python apps won't be affected by version switching.

    2. To completely uninstall Pyenv, remove all configuration lines for it from your shell startup configuration, and then remove its root directory. This will delete all Python versions that were installed under $(pyenv root)/versions/ directory:

      rm -rf $(pyenv root)

      If you've installed Pyenv using a package manager, as a final step, perform the Pyenv package removal. For instance, for Homebrew:

      brew uninstall pyenv

    Advanced Configuration

    Skip this section unless you must know what every line in your shell profile is doing.

    pyenv init is the only command that crosses the line of loading extra commands into your shell. Coming from RVM, some of you might be opposed to this idea. Here's what pyenv init actually does. Step 1 is done by eval "$(pyenv init --path)", the others are done by eval "$(pyenv init -)".

    1. Sets up your shims path. This is the only requirement for pyenv to function properly. You can do this by hand by prepending $(pyenv root)/shims to your $PATH.

    2. Installs autocompletion. This is entirely optional but pretty useful. Sourcing $(pyenv root)/completions/pyenv.bash will set that up. There is also a $(pyenv root)/completions/pyenv.zsh for Zsh users.

    3. Rehashes shims. From time to time you'll need to rebuild your shim files. Doing this on init makes sure everything is up to date. You can always run pyenv rehash manually.

    4. Installs the sh dispatcher. This bit is also optional, but allows pyenv and plugins to change variables in your current shell, making commands like pyenv shell possible. The sh dispatcher doesn't do anything crazy like override cd or hack your shell prompt, but if for some reason you need pyenv to be a real script rather than a shell function, you can safely skip it.

    To see exactly what happens under the hood for yourself, run pyenv init - or pyenv init --path.

    If you don't want to use pyenv init and shims, you can still benefit from pyenv's ability to install Python versions for you. Just run pyenv install and you will find versions installed in $(pyenv root)/versions, which you can manually execute or symlink as required.

    Uninstalling Python Versions

    As time goes on, you will accumulate Python versions in your $(pyenv root)/versions directory.

    To remove old Python versions, pyenv uninstall command to automate the removal process.

    Alternatively, simply rm -rf the directory of the version you want to remove. You can find the directory of a particular Python version with the pyenv prefix command, e.g. pyenv prefix 2.6.8.


    Command Reference

    See COMMANDS.md.


    Environment variables

    You can affect how pyenv operates with the following settings:

    name default description
    PYENV_VERSION Specifies the Python version to be used.
    Also see pyenv shell
    PYENV_ROOT ~/.pyenv Defines the directory under which Python versions and shims reside.
    Also see pyenv root
    PYENV_DEBUG Outputs debug information.
    Also as: pyenv --debug <subcommand>
    PYENV_HOOK_PATH see wiki Colon-separated list of paths searched for pyenv hooks.
    PYENV_DIR $PWD Directory to start searching for .python-version files.
    PYTHON_BUILD_ARIA2_OPTS Used to pass additional parameters to aria2.
    If the aria2c binary is available on PATH, pyenv uses aria2c instead of curl or wget to download the Python Source code. If you have an unstable internet connection, you can use this variable to instruct aria2 to accelerate the download.
    In most cases, you will only need to use -x 10 -k 1M as value to PYTHON_BUILD_ARIA2_OPTS environment variable

    Development

    The pyenv source code is hosted on GitHub. It's clean, modular, and easy to understand, even if you're not a shell hacker.

    Tests are executed using Bats:

    bats test
    bats/test/<file>.bats

    Please feel free to submit pull requests and file bugs on the issue tracker.
