Python3 create and active a python virtual environment
Intro to Python3 environments¶
While using Python, you might want to use a separate environment to keep
pip packages separate from other environments
or separate from your main operation system.
Python virtual environments is on of the options for that.
Of course you could use containers but here I just want a quick and simple virtual environment to run python code.
