Virtualenv Application Manager

Install Python applications into their own virtual environments automatically.

Have you ever tried to install two applications from PyPI which have conflicting requirements? The usual answer to this is using virtualenvs which provide a sandboxed environment to install the packages into. However, virtualenvs are not really designed for installing applications into, they are designed for installing libraries into against which you write your application.

vam provides a way to install as many Python applications as you wish alongside each other without them interfering with in any way.

For example, running:

vam install pss
vam install pytest

will install each of these into their own virtualenvs so that any dependencies they have will not interfere. A launcher script will be installed into ~/.local/bin/ to start any applications they may have installed.
