The cousin of pipenv shell doesn't activate env

See original GitHub issue

I somehow doubt this is an issue with pipenv, as it works as expected on the Windows7 machine at work. But on my OSX 10.12.6, with pyenv-installed pythons and homebrew-installed pipenv, issues arise:

I create a .venv with pipenv and run pipenv shell, but the virtual environment doesn’t activate… python and pip are still the global commands.

I could use some help figuring what I did wrong.

Please run $ python -m, and paste the results here.

/usr/bin/python: No module named pipenv

(This is output after pipenv shell)

Expected result

Running pipenv shell should let you run python and pip being the commands from within the environment.

Actual result

python and pip use the global commands.

Steps to replicate

Provide the steps to replicate (which usually at least includes the commands and the Pipfile).

@techalchemy I can only imagine how much you have to go through supporting this tool.

Going through this experience, I now “get it”… or so I think… It now makes sense why I was having that issue, but I would never had guessed (nor realized from reading other issues) that I would need homebrew’s python central to my workflow.

Thanks for all your help!!

For anyone reading this far, to resolve my own issue, I removed the brew-installed pipenv and pip install pipenv on my system python (which is actually homebrew’s python@2). Now it works like a charm.

@Chris-May yeah we need to fix those, that’s all on us and not on you, we deal with a ton of issues related to homebrew but I have no idea who maintains the pipenv release there or how it works or anything, I don’t use or have access to a mac myself
