How to choose between venv, virtualenv, asdf, poetry, etc.?

  • asdf

    Extendable version manager with support for Ruby, Node.js, Elixir, Erlang & more

    The same argument extends to asdf (for a moment I thought you were talking about Common Lisp package manager), but, I'm guessing you mean this: -- unnecessary bloatware. Learn how to manage your environment. It's not hard, and will make you a better programmer. If you rely on tools you don't understand, you produce bad programs which reflect your lack of understanding.
