I'm trying to wrap my head around how to effectively use virtualenv. I made a test environment called "quandl". In this environment I imported the Quandl package and am playing around with some examples from their site.
While in my virtual environment, when I type
ls I see my home directory and all its sub-folders. Does the test environment create its own copies of each of those folders? If that's the case, then with every virtual environment I create from here on out I will see different folders every time I load a new environment. Not necessarily a bad thing, I just want to understand how this all works.
