Variable expansion doesnt work as "pipenv requirements"

See original GitHub issue

Issue description

I am using private repo to install packages and it is refered in Pipfile.lock as like below

"sources": [

Here, pipenv requirements > requirements.txt returns file using environment variables in unsupported format for pip install -r requirements.txt

Expected result(MODIFIED IN COMMENT)

# requirements.txt
random_lib == 0.0.0  

pipenv lock --requirements > requirements.txt returned expected result(this command no longer available)

Actual result

# requirements.txt
-i https://$USER:$   
random_lib == 0.0.0  

Only POSIX format is supported for pip install -r.

As a workaround, couldn’t @RintaroMiyamoto specify the variables in the same way in the Pipfile?

"sources": [ "url":"https://${USER}:${ACCESS_TOKEN}" ]

The requirements file generated by the old command is definitely a bug, environment variables should not be expanded. But according to pipenv doc, pipenv supports for both $VARIABLE and %VARIABLE%, while pip doesn’t. That causes the issue. In order to work with pip, ${USER} should be used instead of $USER.
