How to Create a Python 3.10 Virtual Environment with mkvirtualenv?

Estimated read time 1 min read

To create a Python 3.10 virtual environment with mkvirtualenv, you will first need to install Python 3.10 on your system. Once you have done that, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install virtualenvwrapper by running the following command:
pip install virtualenvwrapper
  1. Create a new virtual environment with mkvirtualenv and specify Python 3.10 as the interpreter:
mkvirtualenv --python=/path/to/python3.10 myenv

In this command, replace /path/to/python3.10 with the path to your Python 3.10 interpreter, and myenv with the name you want to give your virtual environment.

  1. Activate the virtual environment by running the following command:
workon myenv

This will activate the virtual environment, and any Python packages you install using pip will be installed in this environment.

You can verify that you are using Python 3.10 by running the following command:

python --version

This should output the version of Python you installed (e.g. Python 3.10.0).

Note that virtualenvwrapper provides several convenient commands for managing virtual environments, such as mkproject for creating a new virtual environment and project directory at the same time, and deactivate for deactivating the current virtual environment. You can learn more about these commands in the virtualenvwrapper documentation.
