Basic Installation

virtualenvwrapper.bitbucket should be installed using pip:

$ pip install virtualenvwrapper.bitbucket

You will want to install it into the same Python site-packages area where virtualenv, virtualenvwrapper, and virtualenvwrapper.project are located. You may need administrative privileges to do that. Refer to the virtualenvwrapper documentation for configuration instructions for virtualenvwrapper.


The variable VIRTUALENVWRAPPER_BITBUCKET_USER tells virtualenvwrapper.bitbucket what username to use when connecting to BitBucket. The default is to use the name of the current system user ($USER).

If your local system user and BitBucket account name are not the same, you will want to add a line like:


to your shell startup file.
