requirements file

A python project can contain a requirements.txt file to record all dependent packages and their exact version numbers for deployment in a new environment.

In the virtual environment, use the following command to generate the dependent package in the current virtual environment to the file with version number:
PIP free > Requirements. TXT
when you need to create a full copy of this virtual environment, you can create a new virtual environment and run the following command on it:
PIP install - R requirements. TXT
when you install flash MySQL DB, you may report an error, which may be because the dependent package is not installed, Execute the following command to install the dependency package:
sudo apt get build dep Python mysqldb to install the dependency package
