0:00 On the server, it's only purpose is to run this web application. To run this web application, we need to have the virtual environment activated.
0:09 So what I'm gonna show you is that. Lets ask really which Python3 real quick. So we know where it is, there. Having
0:17 that directory is gonna help. What I'm gonna propose is that we change our login. So as we log in, it just activates that virtual environment.
0:23 Otherwise, we do Python stuff, Pip and Python and so on. It's gonna work with the system one. We almost never, ever wanna change it.
0:30 We almost always just want to work with this one virtual environment, so let's just make that the default.
0:36 So we'd say nano ~/.zshrc, go down to the bottom here and we'll say source that bin, instead of Python, we'll say activate like that. If I exit
0:47 out and I log back in. Look at this. Yes, that's the right one. If I "pip list", it's all the stuff that we just installed, FastAPI and so on.
0:58 That's super cool, right? So I totally recommend that you set it up so when you log into your server,
1:03 it just sets up the environment for that one on web app. If you've got 20 we apps and all sorts of things going on,
1:08 maybe it doesn't make sense. In this simple world, I think this is the best thing to do.
