Virtualenv is a tool of the Python programming language that can create an isolated environment. It is the perfect training ground to run versions of other applications without having to contend with compatibility and permissions.

It builds a virtualenv environment with its installation directories, which does not share libraries with other virtualenv environments (and, additionally, does not access the globally installed libraries).
