Why does hatch not save the virtual environment in the same directory I am working in? I went through the doc and couldn’t find a way to achieve that. Maybe it makes sense that it’s that way but I can’t really think why.
Is there a way to create it in the project directory?
Or a good reason to not want to do that?
When you use a tool like
hatch, you are basically giving up precise control over the virtual environment in favor of letting
hatch manage it for you; this includes letting
hatch decide where to keep all such managed environments.
hatch stores virtual environments in a specific data directory that you can specify using the
--data-dir option to the
hatch command itself.
$ mkdir hatchtest; cd hatchtest
$ hatch --data-dir . env create
(The default data directory likely varies from platform to platform; it’s
~/Library/Application Support/hatch on my macOS box.)
