For environment variables, depends what you want, but e.g.:

  • pip install autoenv, source that in your .bashrc and put your environment variables in .env files that are automatically run when you cd into that directory;
  • Install virtualenvwrapper and put environment variable setup/teardown in your postactivate/predeactive files.
