Django virtualenv postactivate hook
#I usually drop something like this into my virtualenv's postactivate for some
#quick and handy shortcuts to common Django commands.
#This way dropping in to do some work on any arbitrary project is as easy as:
# 1. workon <project name>
# 2. djr
cd /path/to/site/root
#Django command shortcuts
alias dj='python'

Hook for new virtualenvs
#I like to use something like this as the global mkvirtualenv new environment hook.
#This drops a few libs and tools that I tend to lean heavily on into the new environment.

Util for generating a Komodo project file that works with virtualenv
A sample utility for customizing virtualenv creation based
on the postmkvirtualenv hook provided by virtualenvwrapper.
This script will generate a Komodo project file suitable for
use in Komodo Edit (and presumably Komodo IDE). The project preferences
are automatically customized so that the Python path contains the
new virtualenv's site-packages directory.
(Project Properties -> Languages -> Python in the GUI)
export WORKON_HOME=$HOME/.virtualenvs
source /usr/local/bin/
source ~/.mybash/
#load Firefox with a development profile
alias ffdev="firefox -no-remote -P dev"
