Hey Brad, Is it possible/ a good idea to make VScode/ Pycharm automatically create and activate for you a pipenv virtual environment?
it's not so easy to do it with vscode [I guess editing settings.json isn't enough, and launch.json needs to be edited also]
any idea why I keep getting the virtual environment created in the same folder like a singleton and can't see any pipfile.lock file? even tough modules are being added to it? (to the same one)
