virtualenv is a tool to create isolated Python environments. See

Setting up virtualenv on the cod-nodes/abel

module load python2
virtualenv my_python_dir

will create locally a python tree.

Then you can run

cd my_python_dir

And you're ready to go.

This is a fix necessary for abel and the cod nodes, normally not necessary:


Deactivating the environment


Using an existing virtual env

cd my_python_dir

Installing modules in your virtualenc

Activate and then run

pip install module_name
