Simple steps to setup virtualenv for Python3

To setup virtualenv for python3 for Django projects, create and cd into the desired folder for the Django project.

Create a folder for virtualenv, eg mkdir venv

$ cd venv // The created folder for virtualenv 

Then run these commands worked for me in this order:

$ virtualenv -p python3 . // setup virtualenv with python3 fin current directory 
$ source bin/activate // ativate virtualenv 

At this point, checking python version will give python3

Install Django:

$ pip install django 

To see all installations run :

$ pip freeze //Django should be included in the list of installations 

Start Django project

$ django-admin startproject --projectname 

cd into created project and run:

$ python runserver
